Welwyn Garden City Cricket Club News story

Jim Arthur

26 Apr 2022

We are very sorry to announce the death on 12 March of past member Jim Arthur.  

Son of George Arthur, Jim was a gentle and well-liked club member who umpired many games for WGCCC during the 1970s and 1980s, always with great expertise and very good humour.  Jim had a great love of cricket and after moving to Indonesia championed the development of cricket in that country, serving as President of Jakarta Cricket Club from 2000-2003.  He remained a good friend of the club, and helped with the design of the club blazers. 

The club sends sincere condolences to his family. 

Jim’s funeral will be on 6th May at 1.15pm at St. John’s Church, Lemsford. This is at the request of Jim’s widow Nur and the children, Thomas and Lizzie, as it’s where Jim and the family worshipped during his childhood. All are welcome. It will be followed by a private family cremation. 

The wake will be held at the pavilion at Digswell Park from 2.15pm onwards and again, all are most welcome to attend. 

Family flowers only, but donations can be made to a charity of your choice if you wish.
