In memory of James Fisher Edisbury Oct 13, 1837 – Oct 20, 1920. A good heart doeth good like a medicine.

Formerly a member of Wrexham Town Council, he was well known in local commercial circles as proprietor of the North Wales Pharmacy and North Wales Mineral Water Company. Perhaps, however, it is in  a masonic capacity he is most distinguished. He was Past Master of the Square and Compass Lodge, Wrexham and the Mark Lodge, Chester; Past Principal Royal Arch, Chester; Past Provincial Grand Warden, Province of North Wales and Principal Knight of Malta and Knight Templar, Chester. James Edisbury was also well known in musical circles and a proficient performer on almost every instrument. For over twenty years he had officiated as honorary organist of the Wrexham masonic lodges. Needless to say he was very popular, not only among the members of the craft, but also his fellow townsmen generally.
