Edward had been born in Stockport and his parents, Edward and Amelia, lived at 99 Banks Lane.

He enlisted in one of the Cheshire's Territorial Battalions, probably during the winter of 1914/15, serving with the number 4419. These numbers were replaced with six-digit numbers in March 1917.

Edward died in hospital after being gassed, almost certainly a few days before, in the action described here.
