Educated at Selwyn College, Cambridge and Ripon College Cuddesdon, he was ordained in 1908[3] and began his ordained ministry with curacies in Hampstead and Roehampton. He was then an incumbent at Clifton On Dunsmore and Leamington Spa. In 1929 he became Sub-Dean of the Coventry Cathedral and, in 1931, following a change in the law, the cathedral's first provost.[4]
