Hello John

It appears, from looking at the digital copies of the records for Roy Tasman Hills and Raymond Timothy Hills, that Roy Tasman married Lily.  There is a certified extract of their marriage certificate on Roy Tasman's file. Roy and Lily married on 9/11/1917 at the Registrar office, St Martin, London.

It appears that there was a clerical error on Raymond Timothy's file where the next of kin was changed to Lily. This probably occured because both men had the same initials.
