Edmund David Faber
Life & Career
Born in Newcastle-on-Tyne, Faber gained six months' time on passing out of Britannia.
After commanding two torpedo boats in 1905 and 1906 and suffering some blame for grounding T.B. 114 in 1905, Faber was appointed to the armoured cruiser Suffolk on 10 April, 1906. Faber would leave her when he went on half pay at his own request, on 28 January, 1907.
Faber was discovered, asphyxiated, on 26 February, 1907. An inquest determined he had committed "suicide while temporarily insane."
