AdminHistorySt John Beverley Groser (1890-1966), an Anglican priest based in East London for 40 years, was a curate at St Michael [and All Angel's], Bromley-by-Bow, from 1922, before moving to Christ Church, Watney Street, and then to St George-in-the-East. From 1948 to 1962 he was Warden and then Master of the Royal Foundation of St Katherine in Ratcliff.

Dorothy Halsall was a lay worker with Father Groser at St George-in-the-East before moving with him to the restored Royal Foundation of St Katharine, becoming one of the original members of the community there.
RelatedMaterialTwo further volumes of her research notes and papers concerning Father Groser's life are at Lambeth Palace Library (ref: MSS 3434-3435).
