Lilian May Tong
1898 - 1921
Not sure if this is Lilian
I have pictures for the rest of the family but this one has no name on it.
So we can only assume that it is.
Sadly it is not the original it is a poor copy.
 

Wife:

Lilian May Tong Spelt Lillian at marriage in 1920 spelt Lillian at death in 1921

Born:

November 13, 1898 Brighton - Steyning - Dec quarter (2b 284)
Died: December 27, 1921 Norwich - Dec quarter (4b 130) - age 23
Buried:    
Parents John Henry Tong
&
Ann Elizabeth Turrell
Why did Lilian die so young ?
I can find no record of a birth or death of a child so at this stage it appears that it could not have been during childbirth but the timing of her death and the date of her marriage would indicate that this could be a possibility.
 

Husband:

Clifford George Harbord  

Born:

1897 Norwich - Mar quarter (4b 158)
Died: ?  
Buried:    
Parents Henry Joseph Harbord
&
Hannah Maria Whall

What happened to Clifford Harbord? Living family members do not recall that he stayed in contact.
However there is a record of a Clifford G. Harbord marrying an Alice M Unsworth at Norwich in 1924 - Mar quarter (4b 189).
If this is the same Clifford then there are records that show he had at least two children with Alice

1/ Iris E. Harbord born 1924 at Norwich - Jun quarter (4b 225)
Iris married Henry P. Pieuiadz or Pieniadzi in 1945 at Norwich - Jun quarter (4b 416)

2/ Brenda P. Harbord born 1931 at Norwich - Mar quarter (4b 168)
Brenda married Frederick C. Scott in 1958 at Nowich - Mar quarter (4b 1579)

Not sure if the above information is correct but I have included it in a hope that if a member of these families are searching the internet and find it they could hold some information or even a picture of Lilian May Tong

July 30, 1920 Norwich - Sep quarter (4b 457)
