C.E. Warren's funeral

John and Gertrude Tully were living at 8 Broadwood Road at the time of the death of my grandfather, Charles Warren, in June 1923 and, as neighbours, it is not surprising that they attended his funeral together with their colleagues the Cossarts who lived at no. 22. Asiatic Petroleum, for whom John Tully and Louis Cossart worked, rented several houses in Broadwood Road at the time. Tully came to Hong Kong as a marine engineer. He first worked for the Whampoa Dock Co. and later Taikoo Docks. He retired back to England in 1934.

In my efforts to unravel the social circle of my grandfather Charles Warren from the names of the people who attended his funeral or sent wreaths, I've had difficulty identifying this person because of differences in the spelling of his surname and also the date of his death. Carl Smith describes him as a marine engineer, which seems right as we can find him in the Jurors Lists of 1909-11 as Foreman at the Taikoo Dockyard. There is a John George Swanston listed at the DBS in 1887 which would probably mean that he was born in Hong Kong.
