The Rt Rev Robert William Stannard[1] (20 October 1895 - 26 December 1986) was an eminent Anglican priest in the middle part of the 20th century. He was born on 20 October 1895 and educated at Westminster School and, after wartime service in the Middlesex Regiment, Christ Church, Oxford.[2] Ordained in 1922 he began his career with curacies at Bermondsey and Putney and was then Vicar of St James, Barrow-in-Furness.[3] Subsequently Rural Dean of Dalton,[4] he then became Archdeacon of Doncaster and Rector of High Melton.
