Almost nothing is known about Edward and it has not been possible to even positively identify him. The 1901 Census records two people of this name living in Stockport. One had only been born the previous year in the Blackley area of Manchester. The other had been born in Reddish around 1881 and was still living there.

Edward could easily be either of these (or someone completely different). Regimental records published after the War indicate the soldier was living in Stockport at the time he enlisted in the town. His service number is late and would be consistent with the younger man being conscripted when he became 18 or the older being conscripted in the normal course of events. IHe cannot have been on active service for more than a few months.

Edward died in a military hospital on the Channel coast from wounds he had received in action. It's not known when he was injured.
