The surname Nand-Lal originates from India, they immigrated to Trinidad apparently to help in the cotton fields. Family history has it that one of the Nand-lal brothers became a banker and then wealthy land owner and sent his sons to University in the UK, one was an Engineer, another a Doctor, and it is believed that the other was an Accountant. The brother Raman who was sent to the UK to study medicine first went to Edinburgh University an then to Birmingham to finish his studies... it was too cold for him in Edinburgh.

You will find a few Nand-lal or Nand surnames in the UK as the -lal was dropped by some due to complications with UK people understanding the nature of the spelling.
