William Carvosso's buried here with his wife who was the first person buried in the graveyard of the newly built church.
On October 13th 1834 William Carvosso died of a bladder infection after spending about 10 weeks in great pain. He was a man who had a wonderfully close relationship with God and who profited from this through his ministry. He had little or no education, he came from lowly stock and yet he shines like a burning light; an example to us all. He would say that he was a teacher and not a preacher, although he would sometimes fill in for an absent preacher, his gifting lay as a class leader; teaching and encouraging his people in the ways of God. He was a man who spent many hours interceding before his Lord for the souls of family, friends and those he was yet to meet. He was a very gifted prayer leader and he excelled at one on one evangelism; be it in the street, going around house to house or by letter. He was a prolific letter writer, using them mainly to encourage people to press on towards the prize.
