Biography contributed by Sharyn Roberts

Discharged in London 17 September 1917 at own request

By the recent death in England of the Rev. B. C. Wieland, Congregationalists in this State are conscious of the severance of an important link in the story of their early home mission work. Though it is 34 years since Mr. Wieland left Western Australia he is remembered with honour and affection by those who were associated with him in the early years of this century. He did most of his visiting throughout the wheatbelt by cycling over rough tracks and long distances. As the work developed he procured a motor cycle. He has left a permanent memorial in his work in many outback areas.
