Kenneth Charles Harman Warner was Bishop of Edinburgh from 1947 to 1961.[1]

Warner was born on 6 April 1891 and educated at Tonbridge School[2] and Trinity College, Oxford. His first career as a solicitor was interrupted by wartime service with the Army Cyclist Corps[3] at the end of which he was awarded the DSO. Ordained after a period of study at Ripon College Cuddesdon in 1924, he began his career with a curacy at St George’s Ramsgate. After this he was a chaplain in the Royal Air Force[4] flying on active service in his fifties[5] then Provost of St. Mary's Cathedral, Glasgow.[6] In 1938 he became Archdeacon of Lincoln[7] before his ordination to the episcopate. He died on 18 March 1983.[8]
