The following information was taken from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website:

"Edward's name appears on the Alamein Memorial, Egypt (Column 31).

The Alamein Memorial forms the entrance to Alamein War Cemetery. The Land Forces panels commemorate more than 8500 soldiers of the Commonwealth who died in the campaigns in Egypt and Libya, and in the operations of the Eighth Army in Tunisia up to 19 February 1943, who have no known grave. It also commemorates those who served and died in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Persia."

Edward's ancestry can be traced back through the Ormerods of Tyldesley.

The Army Roll of Honour 1939-45 records that Edward was born in Brighton and resided in Dorset.
