Educated at Westminster City School, trained for the priesthood at King's College London and ordained in 1932, he began his career with a curacy at St Stephen's, Shepherds Bush. From 1934 he served the Anglican Church in Mauritius, firstly as a missionary priest then as Archdeacon of Mauritius. Returning to England he became Vicar of Twickenham followed by a spell as Rural Dean of Hampstead before appointment to the episcopate as Bishop of Mauritius in 1959. Translated to become Bishop of Fulham (a suffragan bishop of the Diocese of London with delegated responsibility from the Bishop of London for northern and central Europe) in 1966, his final appointment was a sideways move to become Bishop of Edmonton (another suffragan bishop of that Diocese, but actually ministering there) four years later. That See was erected on 29 May 1970 in order to supervise a new district of the diocese created by the experimental area scheme that year.
