Charles Page who was born in London on April 25, 1884, died suddenly at Woking on April 10. A very free and stylish batsman, he played with success for Malvern, Cambridge University and Middlesex. In his two matches against Oxford, however, he made only 12 and 4, 6 and 46, and, so far as first-class cricket was concerned, it was for Middlesex he was seen at his best. In fifty-one completed innings for the County he made 1,423 runs with an average of 26.84, his highest score being 164 not out v. Somerset at Lord's in 1908, made out of 262 in 110 minutes, and including twenty-eight 4's. Of greater merit, however, was his 117 against Lancashire on the same ground three years earlier. He was a very good outfield, but was seen all too seldom in first-class cricket. At Association football he also gained honours, playing for Cambridge, Old Malvernians, the Corinthians, and England.
