ancestry.com have this transcription from World War I Pension Ledgers and Index Cards, 1914-1923 Unfortunately the original image is only available on their site on Fold3 which they charge extra for on top of the normal subs! At least we now know his middle name which may help in the search. The transcription does tell us his mother is Mrs. Edwards from Aberfan South Wales

Edmund. Stewart Edwards.
Rank:Cpl
Service Number:   250092
Corps, Regiment or Unit:   Royal Engineers
Title:   WWI Pension Record Cards and Ledgers
