Edmund Harry Cocksedge

(7 November 1857 - 5 March 1935)
     Edmund Harry Cocksedge was christened on 7 November 1857 in St Matthew, Ipswich, Suffolk. He was the son of James Samuel Cocksedge and Mary Ann Woods.
     Up to that time [1887] the business had been a general engineering one and accepted any work that, by a stretch of the imagination, could be called engineering. It was then, when the younger son, Mr EH Cocksedge returned from India, where he had been concerned with structural work, that the policy of the firm was somewhat altered. Realising the opening for structural engineering in Ipswich and neighbourhood, they decided to meet the need. That step was perhaps the second foundation of the firm, as, although Cocksedge and Company still tackled any engineering job that was in itself a practicable proposition, their name could now found on the steel structures of unfinished buildings. Three of the stands at Newmarket were erected by them, as also were the Colchester by-pass bridge, Fison, Packard and Prentice's fertiliser factory at Ipswich, the Silver Queen Bus Station at Clacton, the Playhouse, Colchester, the Band-stand, Dovercourt, numerous garages, aerodromes, warehouses, barns and covered riding schools.
     Edmund Harry Cocksedge made a will dated 13 July 1934.
     Edmund died on 5 March 1935 in Ipswich, Suffolk, aged 77.
