Ernest Procter was born in Tynemouth, Northumberland. During the First World War Procter served with the British Red Cross Society as an orderly in Dunkirk, documenting his experiences in works of art. After the war he and his wife were commissioned to decorate the Kokine Palace in Burma (1919-20). By the end of the 1920s he turned to more allegorical and religious subjects. He designed a screen which was in place at St. Mary’s Church, Penzance until it was destroyed by fire on Saturday 23rd March 1985. Along with other Newlyn artists he produced works to decorate the Parish Church of St. Hilary, Cornwall.
