His first outing as a soloist came at the Princes Theatre Accrington when he enthralled the audience with Damare’s ‘Cleopatra‘. He finally took the ‘end chair’ position in his own right in 1902.

Ceres died in 1931 as a result of a motor car accident. He was very well known as a Trumpet player in the local theatres.
