Help locate a Chinese ancestor

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to find my great great grandfather, I don't know where to begging with, all I know is that he is from Duhuzhen, Taishan, Guangdong province in China. He ans he's brother migrated to the UK and in 1927 imported a big cargo of cement (concert), steels and gravel to construct a 4 floor building in his hometown and back to the uk on the same year and after that there was no communication because the star of WWII, Japanese invasion and communism.

One of the trunks in my grandparents house has the abbreviation 'CBL' on it, do you know what it means?

If you have any information, and suggestion to where to look for, government dates, links or library resource where I can find information on vessels from the UK to Hong Kong in 1927 or any other information related to it, I will really appreciate it.
