1872 – 1909
Who was Beaumont Cranfield?
Beaumont Cranfield was a first-class cricketer who made 125 appearances for Somerset from 1897 until his death in 1909. A slow left-arm orthodox bowler, he took 563 wickets for his county. At his prime, he could impart strong curve on the ball that meant he could place almost all his fielders on the leg-side. His brother Lionel played for Gloucestershire between 1903 and 1922, though he also appeared for Somerset in 1906; Lionel's son, Monty, played for Gloucestershire before and after the Second World War.
