Biographical history

Norman John May was born in Norwich, Norfolk on 13th October 1851; he first came to Malvern circa 1879; Norman John May of Priory Place, Malvern, photographic artist; founder and one of the directors of Norman May & Co Limited; Kelly's Trade directory of 1884 lists many photographers in Worcestershire, including Norman May of Priory Mount, Church Street, Great Malvern; an extensive traveller, he wrote letters in the columns of the Malvern Advertiser under the nom de plume of "A Rambler"; a biography of Cambridge alumni records that he changed his name in 1887 to John Norman Lindley-Norman; the reason for the change is unknown but his obituary [Malvern advertiser, 22 June 1889] suggested he was hoping to pursue a second career as a barrister and perhaps thought that an implied family connection to Lord Justice Lindley would help; Mr John Norman Lindley-Norman, more generally known locally as Norman May; John Norman Lindley-Norman, photographer, formerly Norman John May, died at Great Malvern on 19th June 1889 aged only 37 years
