John,

Henry Frederick Norbury was born as Henry Frederick Nathan at Wool, Dorset to Henry and Elizabeth Nathan.  His father was a surgeon in Weymouth.  Under the surname "Nathan", Henry entered the Royal Navy in 1860, and married Mina in 1868 in Burton Braddock.  In September 1874 Henry legally changed his surname to "Norbury."  They remained married until his death in 1925, having 8 children.  Mina passed away in 1933.

Tom,

Thanks for that.

I have acquired some of the material that sold with his album.

Mina, as you mentioned, died in 1933, on 3rd April, she is interred in Eltham Churchyard, South-East London. As an aside, so is my maternal Grandmother, and the same funeral directors - Francis Chappell & Sons - conducted both of the funerals. The printed order of service for her internment was included, as well as number of other papers and documents, sadly none are of Zulu War interest.
