Hi Kieran,

Why should it look like the scan?
That is, what engraving reference (e.g., Gardner Read) do you have which indicates that the tremolo should be inside the staff?
I do not have any engraving reference; however I am going by 20+ years of experience playing music (this sort of thing shows up in orchestral violin parts often). I have never seen something like the typesetting produced by lilypond. Also, beams are always typeset within the staff; logic suggests the tremolo beams should be the same.

I can say without a doubt that the lilypond output would be considered incorrect (and hard to read) by musicians. If there is an engraving reference that says otherwise, I would be very surprised. However, I'm afraid I will have to leave it to someone else to look this up.

    \override StemTremolo #'Y-offset = #-5.5 c''''1:16

Hope this helps!
Many thanks - I still think someone should have a look at the default behavior in this type of situation.
