Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Mr. Gordon Ellis Gall, 65, former Registrar of the Anglican Archidiocese of Brisbane, died in St. Martin's Hospital on Sunday after noon after 15 weeks' illness. Mr. Gall had been registrar for 34 years before his retirement, at the end of last year through illhealth. Born at Eastwood, Notts, England, he came to Australia in 1896, and served as a jackeroo and overseer on pastoral properties in the Richmond district. Later he entered a Charters Towers stockbroking firm. In 1907 he came to Brisbane, and three years later was appointed Diocesan Registrar. He served in the Field Artillery during the First World war, and was three times wounded. His wife died two years ago, leaving no family. A brother, Mr. C. G. Gall, formerly of Mount Ennis- killen Station, Blackall, is living in Brisbane.
