Arthur Haygarth was born at 30 Wellington Square Hastings Sussex on 4 August 1825 and this plaque on that house was unveiled by David Frith in May 2000.

He died at 88 Warwick Street (now Warwick Way) Pimlico 1 May 1903 and this plaque on that house was unveiled by Christopher Martin-Jenkins in 2003.

He was buried on 5 May at Brompton Cemetery (BR 165770) and the service was conducted by Rev. Arthur Veysey.

This grave is difficult to locate as it is an area to the east of the colonnades to the south of the cemetery which is not properly maintained and is lost in a myriad of brambles and weeds. He is buried with his mother.

Arthur played most of his matches for MCC and Surrey but he played three matches for his home county, Sussex, and this paving stone is situated outside the county club’s office at Hove. He was player number 42.

The MCC's Father Time Wall is an ambitious project which is primarily for members to see their names in lights. Arthur however is celebrated on one of the larger displays and can be found at position 76 behind the Grandstand.

Our little dog Frank died after 15 happy years in February 2021. With a big gap in our lives my wife and had to get another animal. When we found this expert fielder, his name had to be Arthur. Obviously, a red ball player he already has his whites on!
