Biography of Reverend William Bramley

William Bramley
William Bramley

William John Bramley was a divinity student at the University of Glasgow from 1949-1953.

Born in Norwich on the 28th October 1919, William was educated at the Angel Rd School for Boys. He was 29 when he began his education in the Faculty of Divinity at the University of Glasgow, studying both at the main campus and Trinity College.

William studied for four years, taking classes in Systematic Theology, Old Testament and New Testament Literature and Ecclesiastical History.

Although he did not graduate, his matriculation records show that he had never intended to. He appeared in the Final Year Dinner Book for Trinity College, along with the quote “If you’re ever in a jam, here I am”, an allusion to his helpful nature or perhaps to his surname.

William became a minister and worked at the Princes Street Church in Port Glasgow, before emigrating to Australia where he became the Presbyterian minister in a suburb of Adelaide.

William John Bramley died on the 16th January 1981.
