Was his birth registered as Edmund William? If so this looks like him in the 1911 census:-

Just decided to look at the actual image for the 1911 census.

I had assumed that as Edmund's occupation was painter that he would be a house painter.

On the image it says in the column that gives "Industry or service to which the worker is connected" - Photography. So perhaps he was an artistic painter.
