    • Ernest Arthur Greswell, born at Cuddalore, Madras, India on 8 June 1885 and died at Minehead, Somerset, England on 15 January 1962, played first-class cricket for Somerset in 12 matches between 1903 and 1910. A right-handed opening or middle order batsman and a right-arm slow bowler, Ernest Greswell was educated at Repton School and made his debut for Somerset in a single match in 1903, aged 18. In 1908, his younger brother Bill Greswell started playing for Somerset, becoming a regular member of the side in 1909, and in that season Ernest reappeared in six matches, with a further five in 1910. His highest score was only 44, made in the 1909 match against Middlesex in which brother Bill scored his only first-class century. While Bill went on to a successful, if intermittent, cricket career, Ernest did not play first-class cricket after 1910. [Wisden Cricketer's Almanack]
