Henry was aged twenty six and Georgina twenty five The ceremony was witnessed by William Hutchinson (father in law) and Emma Hutchinson (sister in law.)11 Henry was listed as the head of the family on the census of 3 April 1881 in 25 Tower Street, Hartlepool, Durham, England, Henry was a watchmaker and jeweller, his sister-in-law Emma was staying with the family.

They also had one servant.15 The family lived at 101 Thornton Street and later 46 Clifton Avenue. Henry died on 15 August 1913 in 15 Ellison Place, Hartlepool, Durham, England, aged 62 from Carcenoma of colon and operation. His son Norman registered the death. His death appeared in the Northern Daily Mail which read:
Death of Mr H Lamb J.P.. It is with the deepest regret that we have to record the death of one of our most respected townsmen, Mr H Lamb, J.P., Mr Lamb developed a serious illness over a fortnight ago, and was removed to a home in Newcastle, where he was operated upon. a further operation became necessary, and this was carried out on Saturday last. his condition during the last day or two had been very grave, and he passed away this morning. the late Mr Lamb had been one of the most familiar figures in West Hartlepool for many years, and popular alike amongst his fellow tradesmen and the townspeople generally.

He was born at Seaton Carew, and served his apprenticeship at Hartlepool with the late Mr Walker, a former Mayor of the borough. after working as a journeyman in various parts of the country. He eventually returned to West Hartlepool, where, as a jeweller, he established the business in Lynn Street which is still carried on. personally he was the most genial of men, and the sociability of his nature and his never-ending fund of good humour made him popular in all circles. and Mr Lamb moved in many circles. who could overlook his valuable work in connection with the porpoise club, of which he was a moving spirit? Swimming was a delight to him, but it was a greater delight to Mr Lamb to teach young people to swim. The local Harriers, too, always found him an enthusiastic supporter.

In politics he was an ardent liberal, and a good worker in the cause he espoused. he was a candidate for public honours as far back as 1893, when he contested the Seaton ward against Mr Jno Hardy and Mr Wm Young. He then received 32 votes. He became member of the council in November, 1897, when he was elected for the Park Ward, and he was a senior councillor when, about two years ago, he was defeated by Councillor W E Robinson. Mr Lamb was created a borough magistrate a few years ago. He was a freemason, and held in high esteem by the brethren. Mr Lamb, who would have been 63 years of age next month, leaves a widow, four sons and two daughters. One daughter, it will be remembered, died a few years ago. the deepest sympathy is extended to the family in their sad bereavement.1,2,16,5,17,18 Henry was buried on 18 August 1913 in Holy Trinity, Seaton Carew, Durham, England, with his daughter Olymphia.

The newspaper article read:
The late Mr H Lamb funeral this afternoon in this peaceful and beautiful little churchyard at Seaton Carew, and within the sound of the gentle murmur of the sea which he loved so well, the body of the late Mr H Lamb, J P was laid to rest to-day. There were many outward signs of esteem in which the late Mr Lamb was held and of the deep regret which his death had called forth, and members of the public bodies, freemasons, members of the porpoise swimming club (for which he did so much), as well as the townspeople generally, assembled to pay their last tribute of respect. many gathered at the residence, 46 Clifton Avenue, and others, including most of the freemasons, went by special tram cars and joined the cortege at Seaton Carew, the native place of the deceased gentleman.

Mr Lamb was a treasurer and a p.m. of the harbour of refuge lodge of freemasons, and the lodge was strongly represented. the W M (Brother Robert Stafford) was unable to be present, being away from home. Mr D Cooke represented the borough member (Sir Stephen Furness), who was unable to attend personally. the cortege was headed by the posse of the West Hartlepool police, under Superintendent McDonald (who represented the Chief Constable of the County), and Inspector Kevan, and consisted of Sergeant Simpson and twelve Constables. Following the hearse were several carriages containg beautiful wreaths and other floral tributes. the chief mourners were Mr Mat Lamb and Mr Norman Lamb (sons), Miss Lamb (daughter), Mr J Lamb (brother in law), Mr Curchin (brother in law), Mr and Mrs Geo Greathead (brother in law and sister), Mrs Storer (sister), Mr Hugh Birks (son in law). All along the route of the sad procession blinds were drawn as a token of sympathy for the family and respect for the memory of deceased, and at Seaton Carew there were the same evidences of mourning. the body was met at the gates of the church-yard by the Reverend C F Bickmore, M.A., vicar, who conducted the services and performed the last offices of the church at the grave-side.19,17 Henry left a will Henry left the shop to his wife under the instructions that when she died it be sold and the money be divided into six. His five remaining children to each get a fifth and the last sixth be added to his daughter Ellen's share as it was unlikely that she marry. Sadly this division did not happen as he asked, it was wholly passed down to his son Matthew.20
