Aaron Burford died on or after 28 June 1881 at Brighton. This information was on the probate granted to his wife Elizabeth in 1904. It is not known why she left it so long before applying for probate. Maybe she thought she didn't need to do it and then something came up, or maybe she couldn't prove he was dead. Given the wording that he died "on or after 28 June 1881" it may be that he left her and was never seen again? Perhaps he went to the Boer War and never returned? Anything is possible. Maybe something will come up with more research.
His estate was probated on 16 May 1904 at London, England, Effects £45 19s 10d. Confirms date of death as on or after 28 June 1881 in Brighton.4

Cecil Lawrence Burford married Ethel Gibson in 1931 at Poplar, London, England.
Beryl Burford writes: Cyril rarely talked about his early life. We did not know about the Workhouse until the 1911 census. We did know he lived an orphanage type school. He went from there to the Savoy Hotel London to train as pastry chef. He was talented and continued this type of work until retirement.
I have a photograph of Cyril with two children in Australia. We do not know who they are but believe them to be cousins. Cyril was a chef on a cruise liner in 1930's which I believe docked at Fremantle.

Cecil Lawrence Burford died in 1978 at Watford, Hertfordshire, England.

The 1911 census entry states that they have had 7 children with 6 still alive.5
Their son Frank Christopher Burford was killed on 1 Mar 1916 in WW1. Royal Sussex Regiment, 2nd Battalion, No L/10210, Private, killed in action.
Their son George Philip Burford was killed on 9 Aug 1918. London Regiment, 7th Bn, No 355562, Private. There was a story handed down the family via Freda Amy Barber (nee Taylor) that "somewhere in the Marchant family there were twins and when the first one went to war and was killed, the second went to avenge him and was also killed". This probably is referring to the Burford boys, although they were not twins. Another aspect of this story was handed down to Angela Emmerton from her family (descendants of Lily Maria Marchant) who was told that the mother was blind and she found out about the death of her son by one of her children reading the paper to her. It was later found in the 1891 census that Rhoda was recorded as blind so this may also have some truth to it.
