Dead Socialist Watch, #295

Alan Ecclestone, Communist and Anglican priest; born Stoke-on-Trent, 3 June 1904; died London, 14 December 1992. To those Anglicans who objected to the way in which he repeatedly stood as a CP candidate in the 1960s, he “always insisted… that the church was guilty of crimes equally as great as those of the party, and believed that commitment to a person, place, calling, or principle should not be lightly revoked.” [ODNB]
