Obituaries

Scope and Content

Circular letters from CWM Personnel team to members and 'Friends', reporting on the death of individual missionaries, with biographical details of their service. Also includes lists of deaths by year and in some cases, additional obituaries or speeches given at the funeral/memorial service of the deceased, and press cuttings. Files have been weeded to remove correspondence with families and other administrative papers. Formal obituaries were often published in CWM newsletters, including 'Newsshare' and later, 'Inside Out'.
