Content and context

Cyril Edric Tomkinson (1886-1968) was born on 15 May 1886, and educated at Dulwich College and Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge (B.A., 1908; M.A., 1912). He entered Wells Theological College in 1910, and was ordained deacon in 1910 and priest in 1911. Tomkinson was Vicar of St Stephen's, Lewisham, 1930-1934; St Bartholomew's, Brighton, 1934-1937; All Saints, Clifton, Bristol, 1939-1943; and All Saints, Margaret Street, London, 1943-1951. He died on 5 June 1968. Tomkinson was Anglo-Catholic in religion; it has been recalled of him that he described the style of the worship performed at All Saints, Margaret Street, as 'music by Mozart, choreography by Fortescue, decor by Comper, but libretto by Cranmer'.

From John Betjeman (1), Alec Guinness (14), Ronald Knox (9) and Siegfried Sassoon (10). With related printed items.

Presented by the Revd Cyril Tomkinson, 1961.

The contents have been tipped into the volume and foliated. A reference in the form of a spread of numerals (e.g. 2-5) indicates a single letter consisting of more than one folio. A reference with an 'a' (e.g. 7-7a) indicates the presence of an envelope or enclosure accompanying the letter.
