Commonwealth War Graves shows Edward’s next of kin as father Joseph, mother Elizabeth of Chester, wife Zenda in Derbyshire. It also notes his brother, Frederick William also died on Service (see his entry also on this website).

The 1939 Register records Edward, together with Joseph, Elizabeth and John as resident at 28 Lightfoot Street. His occupation is recorded as sheet metal worker.

The Register of Army and Navy deaths records his death of Bronchiectosis at Broad Green Hospital Liverpool. This was probably Bronchiectasis a lung disease which can be caused by a number of factors possibly to be found on warships.
