Profile

Canon J. H. Parsons, the former Warwickshire cricketer who also achieved distinction in the Army and in the Church, died peacefully at Plymouth on February 2, at the age of 90. His early years were spent in Oxford, where his father was chef at Brasenose College and captained the City cricket club. When the family moved to Coventry, Jack Parsons went to Bablake School, joined the Humber car firm and made his 2nd XI debut for Warwickshire in 1910. A double-century secured him a place in the 1st XI and in the Championship-winning side of 1911.
