Born 1947 – South London – Clapham / Battersea Borders. in 1966 Paul trained with the ambulance service, being the start of a 30 year career in public service – 20 years with London and 10 years with Bedfordshire [later Beds/Herts] where his career ended as director of corporate affairs having climbed through the ranks to deputy chief ambulance officer. Early education was supplemented in the 1980s and 90s by achieving a BA (hons) and MBA degrees with the OU together with executive management training in the USA. Throughout his life his interest has been freemasonry and particularly masonic history – he is a published writer on many related subjects and as well as a collector of memorabilia and has built a fine collection of military dress medals and Staffordshire pottery. After 1996 following his formal career he started a small business supplying transport to the coach and funeral trade – this led to a funeral company in partnership which he maintained for ten years – after a planned retirement having turned 60 he continues to perform celebrant services and assistance to bereavement care companies – helping many families in their time of need.
