Gedling: All Hallows - the grave of the cricketer Arthur Shrewsbury
Gedling: All Hallows - the grave of the cricketer Arthur Shrewsbury
When asked which batsman he would most want in his team, Dr W G Grace replied, "Give me Arthur." Arthur Shrewsbury (1856-1903) was the first Nottinghamshire batsman to score a double century, and he played in 23 Test Matches and was the first to pass 1,000 Test runs. Wrongly believing himself suffering from an incurable disease, Shrewsbury shot himself and was buried in Gedling churchyard two days later. The inscription on the tomb reads: "To the memory of Arthur Shrewsbury, for 23 years a member of the Notts County Cricket XI and a renowned cricketer. This monument was erected to perpetuate the esteem and regard of his relatives and friends."
