Reasons why the image for this memorial was requested

I've admired the works of Bishop Wescott and love the stone masonry skills of old tombstones that have seemed to gone away. It is a curiosity, I suppose, to see if he left any last words or epitaph. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I just discovered today that BBF Westcott served his curacy in the church I am serving mine, where Stephen Conway,+Ely also did his, Stephen and I both having trained at Westcott House, courtesy of a 1934 newspaper article saying he was leaving for Portsea. Stephen just asked me what happened to him after that so I was looking! Now tascinated. Thankyou!

I was baptised by Basil Westcott when he was Vicar of Chirch Church, Gateshead and he is the first Vicar I can remember as a young boy. I will also be meeting with another member of the parish from that time and who is a Long-time licensed Reader; we tend to share memories!

BBFW was my brother in laws childhood religious mentor during the 50's at St Mary's church Bearwood Birmingham. I would like to give the picture to his widow my sister who knew BBFW well.
