Methodist Roll

Methodist Roll excerpt

Seven-year-old Edith Annie Heady wrote her own name in the Methodist Roll


The Methodist Twentieth Century Fund was officially launched in 1898. Its aim was to raise funds to build a world centre for Wesleyan Methodism in London – over one million pounds was raised by the giving of one guinea each (plus another guinea in memoriam for any loved ones who had passed away). Each person donating recorded their name in a book, and these were gathered together as the Methodist Roll. The originals as well as fiche viewing copies are held at the Methodist Central Hall in Westminster.

The following names appear in the Leighton Buzzard circuit recorded in volume 7 fiche 5-6 (I have alphabetised them). As generally each person signed their own name (at the very least the head of the household did) you may like to seek out the fiche for yourself.
