Born in Platt Hall, Rusholme.
Tindal may have been originally named Ralph Tindal-Carill-Worsley, but his mother wrote in 1913 to ask that he simply be called Ralph Tindal.
Tindal was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 31 March, 1904.
Tindal was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant-Commander on 31 March, 1912.
Tindal was placed on the Retired List at his own request on 1 August, 1912.
On 3 April, 1917, H.M.S. Jason was lost to a mine. Tindal's performance on this occasion prompted the Admiralty to grant him the acting rank of Commander, effective 22 May.
