He was born at St Ives, Cornwall, the son of parents Edward & Jane Oliver who moved to Peckham in the early 1880s where his father was a schoolmaster.

He was a founder member of the Camberwell Division of the Red Cross, and started the first blood donor panel in 1921. By the outbreak of World War II he had created a blood transfusion network covering the whole of the United Kingdom.
