I didn't see a thread for Moody up here yet (Still being transferred) and so I hope I'm not out of line in posting this thread. I was wondering about Moody's religious affiliation. Was it Anglican?
This picture here: James Paul Moody (1887 - 1912) - Find A Grave Photos seems to 'look' either Anglican or Catholic. If this question has been asked before, do forgive me, but I was unable to find anything pertaining to this.

He was Anglican - the family connections were High Church. One of his memorials is in the church where he was baptised, St-Martin-on-the-Hill in Scarborough, which was considered a bit too Roman Catholic in some Church of England circles back in the 19th Century thanks to its Oxford-movement inspired ornamentation and rituals. St Augustine's in Grimsby (opened in May 1912), where the altar set is located, also leans towards that High Church tradition. One of the Moody brothers converted to Roman Catholicism in World War I.
