Henry Ernest Hall was born on 7 September 1869 in Roebourne, Western Australia.[1]

In about 1916 he moved to Jarmen Island off the coast of Cossack to join his brother Harold Aubrey Hall as a lighthouse keeper.[2]

In 1926 he wrote the following letter to the Sunday Times in Perth:[3]


Complaint from Cossack

H. E. Hall (Cossack) writes: "I wish to call attention to the manner in which the people of this town are treated by the authorities, who are not satisfied with bringing the Derby lepers close to Cossack but also allow the white attendant from the leper station to visit the town and enter the public places, including the telephone box; I might mention that there is only one medical man for the whites and lepers."

He died aged 71 on 6 June 1941, in Perth.[1]
