Biographical history

The Dingle family, residents of New Westminster and parishioners of Holy Trinity, visited and entertained seamen for ships in port at New Westminster beginning in 1928. This ministry was begun in 1928 by the Men's Club of Holy Trinity and in the next year became associated with the world-wide organization, Missions to Seamen, based in London, England. The Dingle family was involved in this service, including the parents Richard Gray and Florence Eleanor, daughter Peggy, and son Bill, who later served as Assistant Chaplain at Missions to Seamen in Vancouver from 1964 to 1969.
