Memorial to Eric St Quintin Wall in Ely Cathedral

The Rt Rev Eric St Quintin Wall (19 April 1915 – 11 April 2011[1]) was the second Bishop of Huntingdon from 1972[2] to 1980 and from then on an Assistant Bishop within the Diocese of Gloucester. The son of a clergyman,[3] he was born on 19 April 1915 and educated at Clifton College and Brasenose College, Oxford. Ordained in 1939 he began his ecclesiastical career with a curacy in Boston, Lincolnshire [4] after which he was a World War II chaplain in the RAFVR. When peace returned he held incumbencies at Malmesbury, Cricklade [5] and then finally (before his elevation to the Episcopate) at Westbury Park, Bristol.
