  MissScarlett: The Times, January 11th, 1936, p.7:

<Our Chess Correspondent writes:- I regret to record the death of Mr. Edmund Spencer, which occurred at Liverpool on Tuesday from septic poisoning. He was hon. secretary and treasurer of the Northern Counties Chess Union and a regular player for Lancashire in their county matches. He was one of that large band of first-class players in this country who have done so much for the game in a quiet way, and one who justly earned the regard of all with whom he came into contact. He occasionally played in the British Championship Tournament with fair success, and was ohe of the members of the British Empire team in the Team Tournament at Westminster in 1927.>

  MissScarlett: American Chess Bulletin, April 1919, p.128:

<Corporal Spencer, one of the strongest English players, and who before the war was honorary treasurer of the Liverpool Chess Club, is back from Germany, where he was a prisoner of war. He says he was rather badly treated at first, but when our last push began even the German officers began to salute prisoners, and soldiers passing in the trains would call out to them "Deutschland kaput" (Germany done for). - The Field.>

Sep-17-15  epistle: Wesley fast losing time. He knows he is cooked.
Feb-13-16  1 2 3 4: He won against Rubinstein and Burn with the same Nxg7 concept.
Nov-19-19  mifralu: This source gives < DOB June 19, 1876 - DOD January 4, 1936 >
