The brother of Joseph Horace, Edgar was born in Wolverhampton in 1898. The 1911 census shows him alongside his parents and brother at 247 All Saints Road.

Edgar was listed in the Midlands Counties Express on 5 September 1914 as another young man willing to serve the Special Service Companies. But I have not been able to confirm details of his military service.

Edgar qualified as a dentist in 1921, and registered on 9 May 1924. He appears on the Dentist Registers for 1930, 1935, 1940 and 1942. He died at New Cross Hospital, Wolverhampton on 4 January 1961. His address by this date was 22 Powlett Street, and the value of his effects was £4665 15s. 7d. Apparently, probate was granted to his widow, Eliza Guest, but I have not been able to find any record of their marriage.
