Congreve, George Thomas, born at Islington, 1821, and educated for the medical profession, has practised in London for many years. As a Deacon of the Baptist Church, Kye Lane, Peckham, and Superintendent of its Sunday School, he has done much to advance the interests of that body, and to popularise Sunday School work. In the interest of Sunday Schools he published, in 1869:—
Gems of Song for the Sunday School. A Hymn-book adapted for General Use in Schools and Families. Loud., Elliott Stock. To this was added Gems of Song Music, 1871.
Of this collection about one million copies have been sold. Mr. Congreve contributed thereto:—
