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.

Typhoid

I'm beginning to see some links between the mourners who were the group of friends and associates of my grandfather Charles Warren, in that, according to Carl Smith, George Avenell was the brother-in-law of F.P. Lenfesty, one of the other mourners mentioned in the obituary. That said, the attribution is to Mr and Mrs E.G. Avenell, so there may be a mistake, but I can't find an E.G. Avenell. George Avenell came to Hong Kong with the Sherwood Forresters in 1902 and thence to Shanghai. He returned to Hong Kong as Armourer Staff Sergeant to the Police and also joined the HK Volunteers.

The family moved to Stone Ness, Ashurst, Kent in about 1916.  In 1916 the entire family was granted the right to change the family name to Morris, and bear the family coat of arms, by King George V.
