I have tried to find them on the census but Taylor-Smith is an impossible
I have found Kenneth Crisford in 1901 but I need later information perhaps
and I would love to find out more about his war record as he won a MC.

Hi Dawn,

aged 90. He was sometime vicar of St. Saviour, Leeds, vicar of Church of

with the M.C. on September 4th. 1918. He received an M.A. at Cambridge in
February 1922.

Bishop John Taylor Smith was born in 1860 in Kendal, and lived there until
1901. He died at sea on board the SS. Orion, March 28th. 1938, and was buried
at sea. He was ordained in 1885 to the curacy of St. Paul, Upper Norwood. In
1890 he took the appointment of Diocesan Missioner to the Bishop of Sierra
Leone, including the post of canon and sub-dean of St. George's Cathedral,
Freetown. He was made an honorary chaplain to Queen Victoria in 1896. He was
