If you're looking on Ancestry they have transcribed him as Edmond.
https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?_phsrc=a63423942&_phstart=successSource&usePUBJs=true&indiv=1&dbid=1262&gsfn=edmond&gsln=edwards&gsfn_x=1&gsln_x=1&cp=0&new=1&rank=1&uidh=a63&redir=false&gss=angs-d&pcat=39&fh=3&h=197646&recoff=&ml_rpos=4&queryId=c9f216d473880b778408c2f6cabea4ea


Notwithstanding that I find that many searches on Ancestry do not turn up a card where a man has more than one number. Not all of them but sufficient to be wary of thinking there's no card.

He's one of them as searching Edwards and 50309 does not turn him up.
