Help with searching HK passenger departures in summer 1938

Submitted by jill on Sat, 10/14/2023 - 03:30

Could anyone who is clever with the passenger lists or with mmis please help me find the final departure date of my Warren uncle's wife and children for England in the summer of 1938? The C.E. Warren & Co. Ltd. office in Canton must have already closed due to the Japanese blockade of southern China. Leslie and Cicely Warren's son was about to turn thirteen, which was the right time for him to start secondary school. I haven't been able to find a record for the family in a passenger list through  Their full names were Cicely Beatrice Warren (Mrs. L.B. Warren); Geoffrey Beale Warren (b. 1925); Diana Dudley Warren (b. 1926). They quite likely took a cheaper route than via Canada. Other family members have sailed from Dairen or gone via Kobe, but Cicely herself previously sailed on Blue Funnel Line ships direct from Hong Kong.  They probably arrived in Liverpool as Cicely's family lived in Hereford. I am trying to fill in some of the final gaps in my family history. Thanks to everyone in advance!
