General Notes: Notes for JOHN FREDERICK EDWARDS:
Documents possessed: Will, Birth Certificate, Death Certificate

In Robert Walton's will, John is named twice as Frederick John Edwards.

Fred retired early, in the 1930's. The Regent Street leases expired in 1926. The cost of renewing the lease & rebuilding the property to the required specification, together with the great slump in sales at the time and the fact that Charlie had overbought, led to financial disaster. Charlie had no choice, but to close down the business.

Fred was the accountant, Charlie the salesman.

There is no doubt that the firm, in it's hayday, made a great deal of money. Also the family married well.

The family lived above the shop initially. In those days, the shops were facades, hiding barns!

One of the sisters married Arthur Baron = Express/United Dairies

Cemetery: POPERINGHE NEW MILITARY CEMETERY Poperinge, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium

Grave or Reference Panel Number: I. C. 20.

Location: Poperinghe New Military Cemetery is located 10.5 km west of Ieper town centre, in the town of Poperinge itself. From Ieper, Poperinge is reached via the N308. From Ieper town centre the Poperingseweg (N308), is reached via Elverdingsestraat then directly over two small roundabouts in the J. Capronstraat. The Poperingseweg is a continuation of the J. Capronstraat and begins after a prominent railway level crossing. On reaching the town of Poperinge, the left hand turning from the N308 leads onto the R33 Poperinge ring road. 1 km along the N33 lies the right hand turning onto Deken De Bolan. The cemetery is located 100 metres from the ring road level with Onze Vrouwedreef on the right hand side of the road.

Historical Information: The town of Poperinghe (now Poperinge) was of great importance during the First World War because, although occasionally bombed or bombarded at long range, it was the nearest place to Ypres (now Ieper) which was both considerable in size and reasonably safe. It was at first a centre for casualty clearing stations, but by 1916 it became necessary to move these units further back and field ambulances took their places. The earliest Commonwealth graves in the town are in the communal cemetery. The Old Military Cemetery was made in the course of the First Battle of Ypres and was closed, so far as Commonwealth burials are concerned, at the beginning of May 1915. The New Military Cemetery was established in June 1915. The New Military Cemetery contains 677 Commonwealth burials of the First World War and 271 French war graves. The cemetery was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield.
