Biography
   I think that George Edgar Pitcher was always known simply as Edgar. He was the son of George Dixon Pitcher of the King's Arms, who himself was a carpenter by trade.. He was in partnership for many years with William Clement Palmer, using the workshop now known as Old Carpenters. There is a photo of Edgar and another in the church in 1907/8 working on the panelling around the high altar. One of the early jobs on which Jack would have worked was the rebuilding of Oak Cottage, the oak beams of which were prepared on a steam sawbench in the yard opposite. Before that he may have worked on the oak gate at the west end of the churchyard, recently replaced after ninety years Derek Boughton
