ROSE, WILLIAM CHARLES 1865 - 1950
Obituary from the Minutes of the Methodist Conference 1951. Page 119
Born at Wimborne, Dorset, in 1865.
He was educated at Wimborne Grammar School, and after a short period of business life entered the Primitive Methodist Ministry in 1891. He served with ability and acceptance in town and country alike, his ministry being exercised in a wide range of circuits.
Preaching with power, he was a faithful and beloved pastor. He took a keen delight in Nature.
While at Motherwell he was forced to give up active work through a breakdown in health, and retired to Worcestershire, where, as long as he could, he helped in the cause he loved so well. Undaunted by physical weakness he continued his interest in the life and witness of the circuit and of Methodism in general.
He died on the 8th August 1950, in the eighty-fifth year of his age and the fifty-ninth of his ministry.
