Dennis Kemp (1859-1936)
Dennis Kemp was born at Groombridge, Kent. After ministerial training at Handsworth, he was ordained in 1887 and volunteered for missionary work on the Gold Coast of West Africa.
In 1895 he was appointed a military chaplain to the Ashanti Exbedition and at about the same time published an account of his African experiences.
In 1897 he returned to England and became chaplain to the Portsmouth and Woolwich garrisons. In 1907, Kemp entered the circuit ministry and was ultimately elected to the Legal Hundred.
