Joseph Stanislaus Hansom, FRIBA (1845-1931) was a British architect. He was the son and partner of the better known Joseph Aloysius Hansom, inventor of the Hansom cab.[2] He trained with his father, becoming his partner in 1869 and taking over the family practice fully in 1880. In 1881 he inherited the practice of John Crawley (1834-1881).[3] In 1881, he designed Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Bognor Regis.[4]

He was among the founders, in 1904, of the Catholic Record Society,[5] and was so active on its behalf that Cardinal Gasquet described him as "its prime mover and energy."[6]
