William Trembarth (d.1940)

William Trembarth was born in Liskeard, Cornwall. He entered the Bible Christian ministry in 1889 and immediately offered himself for service in China, arriving incountry early the following year. In 1894 he married Miss Bailey and went on furlough to England in 1898. The outbreak of the Boxer rebellion prevented his return to China and he worked in English circuits before rejoining the China mission in 1903. He returned to home-work in 1906 but had a further term of missionary service in China from 1922 to 1927.
