Educated at The King’s School, Canterbury and Jesus College, Cambridge, he was ordained in 1905 and after a curacy at Leyton became secretary of the Church Pastoral-Aid Society. Incumbencies at Benwell, Southport and Oxford followed, before he became Provost of Bradford Cathedral in 1933. Elevation to the Episcopate followed ten years later and he stayed in this, his final post, until retirement in 1951. A “kind and fatherly man”, he died in 1964.
