Handcross Park cricket team 1927

The Handcross Park cricket team assemble for a photograph to also include, I presume, the opposition and other supporters.
In the background can be seen the Handcross Park mansion before it was destroyed by fire in 1935 (see picture #16).
From left to right.
Back row:- A. Bartlett (umpire), Toogood, Chown, Tayman, T. Bailey, Fenn, Doggett, Kennard, J. Bailey, W. Rapley, Funnell, Weller, Hygate (?).
Middle:- Creasey (scorer), Arthur Farrow, Sadler, Jenner, J. Bailey, Col. J. Raymond Warren, Baigent, Faulkner, William Biggs, Rush.
Front:- Rennie, F. Bailey, Ansfield, Powell, Unknown.
It is interesting to see the scorers from both teams, clutching their scorebooks.
The Large Version shows a close up.

In the back row is Fenn, does anybody know his first name?
This is one of my uncles. There were brothers, Sydney and Percy, and both worked on the estate. Sydney was a chauffeur at the Hyde. My grandfather, Athur Fenn, and his wife, Kate, were their parents and worked for Lester Reid at The Warren.
If anybody has any information I would appreciate it.
