I believe your father was a cousin to my grandfather.  (Your great-grandfather was my great-grandfather's younger brother.)   My grandfather lived in Kew at 22 Victoria Cottages where his father was a carpenter at Kew Gardens.   I believe I have seen census reports that place your grandfather, Edgar, on North Sheen, and then a few years later, on Victoria Cottages Road, #20 I think.
