Lily or Lilian Ward c 1888 (General)

I suspect your Lilian E Ward is actually Emily E Ward who is living at Lane end in the 1891 census and English Bicknor in the 1901 census. Her father was William and her mother Emily. Other than the name difference it's a close match.

William died in 1907 which maybe why he's not shown on the marriage record.

I've previously found people who's name seems to change and Emily to Lily to Lilian isn't impossible. I wonder if it happened sometimes because the person couldn't write so relied on someone else to write their name - so if she called herself Lily, the person might interpret that as a short form of Lilian.
