George Ernest Ingle (1895–1964)[1] was an Anglican suffragan bishop.

Born into an ecclesiastical family[2] in 1895, he was educated at Felsted and Jesus College, Cambridge. After wartime service with the Royal Norfolk Regiment, he embarked on an ecclesiastical career with a curacy[3] at St Peter’s, Cranley Gardens, Hammersmith. Following this, he was Chaplain to the London Irish Rifles then of the British Embassy Church, Paris. A long period as a master at his old school, Felsted, was followed by short posts as Vicar of St John's, Greenhill, Harrow and as Rural Dean of the British Zone of Germany before he was elevated to the episcopate as the third Bishop of Fulham,[4] a post he held for only seven years. Translated to Willesden, he died on 10 June 1964.
