Walter Joseph Sendall
Sir Walter Joseph Sendall, GCMG (1832–1904) was a British colonial governor.
He was Governor-in-Chief of the Windward Islands, from 1885 to 1889. There he promoted road construction in Grenada, and founded a botanical garden. He suspended the Legislative Council on St. Vincent, rather than appoint black members he felt were unqualified. After some hesitation he supported finance for the Grenada Boys' Secondary School.
He was Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George in 1887, knighted KCMG in 1889, and GCMG in 1899.
