Arthur Henry Whinfield (1863-1917) was the son of Edward Wray Whinfield, a “fundholder and landowner”. The family moved to Severn Grange in Claines in the 1870’s where Arthur grew up with his two older brothers.

Severn Grange was one of Claines’ grand houses known for its wonderful gardens. The Whinfield family became very well known for their charitable work and were well known on the Worcestershire Music scene.

Arthur Henry Whinfield was Organist at Claines Church and took over Nicholson’s Organ Works at Worcester. He married into the Curtler family of Bevere. He was a well known local photographer and recorded many aspects of the parish.

Arthur Whinfield is buried in Claines Churchyard with his wife and parents and the Lych Gate was erected in his memory.
