Dennis Hendren, who died in hospital on May 30, aged 79, played for Middlesex from 1905 to 1908 in the days when the county side was predominantly amateur.

Dennis Hendren afterwards threw in his lot with Durham, whom he assisted in the Minor Counties' competition from 1910 to 1914. He stood as a first-class umpire for a number of years between 1931 and 1949.
