 The Oval, Kennington was a cricket ground from 1845. The Pavilion was completed in 1898.

The Ashes of 1882
When Australia first won on an English ground, The Sporting Times ran an English cricket obituary (far left) saying, “The body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia”. Later at Melbourne during the 1882-83 winter tour, local women gave English captain Ivo Bligh an urn of ashes. This was donated by his Australian widow to the MCC in 1927. The urn was never used as a trophy. Since the 1998-99 series, the winners receive a large Waterford Crystal replica.

Original fragile urn, that may hold a burnt cricket bail or ball, in the MCC Museum at Lord’s, London. 

 1882 English cricket obituary that began The Ashes series with Australia.
