She lived at 7A Mirador Mansions on Nathan Road in TST. Her probate states that she died at Kowloon Hospital.
She and George were living in Shanghai as early as 1925 where George worked as a customs officer. In 1938, he was employed as a harbour master, though it’s unclear where in China they were living. By 1939, George had retired, presumably because he had turned 60 that year. On a 1925 ship’s manifest, their address in the UK is listed at being 164 Ellison Street, Jarrow (which is east of Newcastle). However, on a 1938 manifest, he is listed as coming from Chichester, Sussex. Perhaps he is buried in one of those places.
Why is she buried in the furthest corner of the cemetery? Did she commit suicide?
