Ministers of the Primitive Methodist Church

The pages in this category give listings of ministers entering the itinerant ministry of the Primitive Methodist Church prior to Methodist Union in 1932.

All the pages listing Methodist ministers are based on a list of those who had "died in the work" published in September 1963. This means that people who were Methodist ministers but who then left the ministry, for whatever reason, are not listed. The printed reference books by William Leary lists all the ministers, even if they left the ministry. We are adding details of ministers who died since 1963 in 10 year blocks. We have already added those who died between 1964 and 1983 and will bring the story up to date as soon as we can. 

The following abbreviations may be found in the pages:

St.   - died whilst at college

A.C. - accepted for College but died before taking up place
