This paper addresses double stratified mixed convection boundary layer flow of Jeffrey fluid due to an impermeable inclined stretching cylinder. Heat transfer analysis is carried out with heat generation/absorption. Variable temperature and concentration are assumed at the surface of cylinder and ambient fluid. Nonlinear partial differential equations are reduced into the nonlinear ordinary differential equations after using the suitable transformations. Convergent series solutions are computed. Efects  of various pertinent parameters on the velocity, temperature and concentration distributions are analyzed graphically. Numerical values of skin friction coefficient, Nusselt and Sherwood numbers are also computed and discussed.
