Career and life[edit]

The son of Brigadier General Claude Stuart Rome, Rome was educated at Harrow School where he captained the school cricket team in 1929.[1] He later attended the University of Cambridge, where he did not play first-class cricket for the university.[1] He would make his debut in first-class cricket for Middlesex against Cambridge University at Fenner's in 1930. His next two first-class appearances for Middlesex in 1931 and 1933 were both against Cambridge University, while his fourth first-class appearance came in the 1933 County Championship against Glamorgan.[2] He scored a total of 56 runs in his four appearances, averaging 9.33, with a high score of 32.[3]

He was for many years a member of the Surrey County Cricket Club Committee.[1] He died following a fall at The Oval on 20 May 1970.[1]
