Inscription

In Loving Memory of ARTHUR HAYWARD died Jan 16 1904 aged 41

Arthur Hayward (c.1863 – 16 January 1904)

Arthur was the eldest son of Daniel and Emma Hayward, brother of famous cricketer Tom Hayward. and part of the famous Hayward cricket dynasty. He was born in Cambridge and grew up at the Prince Regent on Regent Street, where his father combined being a professional cricketer with running a pub.  He married Laura Ann Moulton (1869-1956) in 1889.  Laura and Arthur had three children: Reginald  Arthur (1890-1972), Thomas Frank (1891-1915) and May Alice (1892-1979).

In 1891 the family were living at 24 Victoria Street with Laura’s parents, and Arthur was a cricketer.  By 1901 they were living at 42 Mawson Road.  Arthur appears to have worked as a professional cricketer through his life, although he never reached the fame of his father or younger brother Tom.  He died of appendicitis at Mawson Road aged 41 years old.

His middle child Thomas (known as Tom) died in a motorbike accident aged 24 years old.  Laura Hayward married again in 1912 to bank manager John Kerr Greig (1854-1931) and lived in Saxmundham with him.  She returned to live in Cambridge after the death of her second husband, and finally died in Chelmsford aged 87 years old.

Laura and Arthur’s eldest son Reggie was also an accomplished cricketer, and was the groundsman for Corpus Christi College for many years.
