The Very Reverend Reginald John Simpson Mitchell-Innes

Born in Berwickshire in 1848, Mitchell-Innes attended Christ Church, Oxford. He became Succentor (assistant to the Precentor) and Chaplain in St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh in 1878, soon after it was first opened for worship. He moved to become the Incumbent at Old St. Paul's Scottish Episcopal Church in Edinburgh in 1884.

He returned to St Mary's Cathedral as sub-Dean in 1897, before serving in Glasgow until 1911, partly as warden of the East End Settlement. He served his final seven years before retirement, at the age of 70, as Provost of St. Andrew's Cathedral, Inverness, living at Dunachton House.

He died in Edinburgh in 1930, after a period of ill health, aged 82.
