Test and First Class Cricketers who died in WW1

Test and First Class Cricketers who died in WW1

This community is about cricketers who fought in WW1. Initially I am basing my search on the book by Nigel McCrery, The Final Wicket: Test and First Class cricketers who were killed in the Great War and then will expand to those who survived the war. My father, Ken Kelly, although a Yorkshire man, was closely linked with Warwickshire County Cricket Club for over 50 years (sports photographer and committee member). I therefore have a particular interest in their players. Dad was passionate about cricket and it's history and, in later years, became the curator of the museum at Edgbaston. I dedicate this community to his memory and hope to utilise what little I remember of the vast knowledge he had about the game and players. People often wrote to him with information and provided objects of interest and I welcome any information others would care to share.
