Plot 538 Arthur Channer (1862-1912)

Arthur was born 1862/3 in Chesham. There were two boys of that name born there, one in 1862 and another in 1863, however the fact that he came to work in Berkhamsted as a brewer’s cellarman makes it highly likely that he is a younger brother of Isaac Channer (1852-1905) who was living in Berkhamsted from at least 1881 and working as a cellarman. (Isaac is buried in an unmarked plot in this cemetery).

If this is the case, then he was the youngest child of Joseph Channer and Sarah Elborn. (They do not appear to have married.) His father was an agricultural labourer. In 1871 the family were living at Ley Green, Ashley Green, Amersham.

Arthur married Annie Elizabeth Preston, from Berkhamsted in 1889 in Kensington.

In 1891 they lived in Mill Street, Berkhamsted and Arthur was a cellarman in a brewery.

By 1901 they had moved to 6, Provident Place and Arthur was described as a “Labourer at brewery” and in 1911 they were living at 21, Chapel Street. Arthur died at Chapel Street in July 1912 aged 49.

Annie survived him until 1939 and is buried here with him.
