He was competent with both pencil and camera, illustrating his numerous contributions to the 'National Cactus and Succulent Journal' and other journals. He produced a small Longman's field guide 'Common Succulents' in 1955 illustrated by Elsie Garrett Rice, and collaborated with Harriet Margaret Louisa Bolus (1877–1970) on the Mesembryanthemaceae.


He became a member of the 'International Organization for Succulent Plant Study' in 1953, and received the 'Cactus and Succulent Society of America' Fellow award in 1981. He is commemorated in the genus Hallianthus, and in numerous succulent specific names.


Hall's training at Kew was complete by 1933, whereupon he became curator of the succulent plant collection at Alexandra Park, Manchester. His consuming interest in South African succulents led to some 600 species being added to the collection. During WWII he spent four years with the Royal Air Force, at the end of which he contacted Robert Harold Compton, director of Kirstenbosch in South Africa, inquiring about the possibility of a position there. A post was created especially and Hall arrived with his wife and 12-year-old son in August 1947. Starting with a very small succulent plant collection, Hall improved its stature to one of world renown by the time of his death.


Hall attended Cheshire Agricultural College for one year (1925–26), Reading University in (1926–27) and two years at the John Innes Horticultural Institute in Wimbledon (1927–29). He then enrolled for a further three-year course (1930–1933) at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, followed by being an exchange student for one year (1931–1932) at the Hanbury Botanical Garden in La Mortola in Italy. Here his passion for succulent plants was ignited, and on his return to Kew headed the section dealing with the cactus and succulent collection.
