Born in Blandford, Dorset, from 1850-1858 he was a chorister at Wimborne Minster.[2] On his death he bequeathed a legacy which continues today as the Edmund Barnes Charity for Organ and Choir Fund.[2] [3]

Following training as a teacher at the Highbury North London Training College, he received his first teaching posts in Kent (Minster Church, Ramsgate) and then Wales. In 1869 he became headmaster of St Clement Danes School in London, and settled in St. Pancras, living there for the rest of his life.[1] He was the organist at St Clement Danes Church from 1869-1882.[1] The Wimbourne organ being demonstrated to Edmund's great-grandson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_3wKAWypaI

In 1885 he was elected to the London School Board, representing the Marylebone Division which included St Pancras along with Hampstead, Paddington and St Marylebone as an Independent.[4] [1] He was re-elected on five occasions, holding his seat until the board was abolished in 1904.[5] [1]

When the Metropolitan Borough of St Pancras was created in 1900, Barnes was chosen as its first mayor, serving two terms.[2] [1]

In 1904 he was elected to the London County Council, which had taken over the powers of the school board, serving a single three-year term representing St Pancras East as a member of the Moderate Party.

He was a justice of the peace, appointed a deputy lieutenant of the County of London in 1894 and chairman of the St Pancras Bench of Justices in 1905.[6] [1]

On 24 February 1932 the Mayor of St Pancras opened Barnes House to its south-west. It was named after Edmund Barnes (1842-1926), who had been born in Blandford, Dorset but moved to London between 1851 and 1861 to train as a teacher and organist at the Church Missionary College in Highbury (the site now occupied by Sutton Dwellings about half a mile south of Highbury and Islington station). In 1869 he became headmaster of St Clement Danes School and organist of St Clement Danes Church on Aldwych, for which he moved to Kentish Town and Camden New Town (2 Alma Street in 1871 and 39 Osney Crescent in 1881). He had retired to 220 Camden Road by 1891, remaining there until his death, though in the 1891 census it seems he was keeping his family going by working as a musical instrument maker. He is buried in Highgate Cemetery. Barnes was elected to the London School Board five times and the London County Council once and was also appointed chairman of the St Pancras Bench of Justices in 1905. He is best known, however, as the very first Mayor of St Pancras after it was made a Metropolitan Borough in 1900. Barnes House was the Council’s Tuberculosis Dispensary and Maternity and Child Welfare Centre, consisting of fourteen three-room flats, seven four-room flats and one six-room flat. The building’s ground floor frontage onto Camden Road consisted of five shops, all but one of which were initially used as showrooms for the Council’s Electricity Department. http://www.smct-history.com/history/1881-1939/st-michaels-between-the-wars/
