Notes: Beverley Road was located at the junction of the Cannon Street Branch and 'main line' from Alexandra Dock and was reputedly the busiest passenger station on the H&BR, being located close to a then prosperous suburb of Hull.

The station was closed along with Cannon Street in 1924 when the LNER diverted passenger services into Paragon station via a new spur linking the Hull-Scarborough branch with the H&BR high level line north of Walton Street level crossing.
