LSWR Victoria official number

Hello all

I am hoping someone might be able to help me find the official number for London & Southwestern Railways (LSWR) ship the Victoria.
She was built in 1896 by J.&G.Thompson, Clydebank, for the Jersey-Granville-St Malo service of the LSWR.

I am looking for crew records but need the official number, and despite looking I cannot seem to find it. I'm beginning to wonder if they had number when she was built?

Many thanks

Alison
