Default Edwardian officer? I'm stumped.

Can I just ask if anyone can give me some clues regarding this chap. An old photograph found hidden behind another. I wouldn't have the skills to comment on him. (I don't own it - a friend, the finder, is asking about it. )

His gongs look like three Jubilee/ Coro medals (1902 etc) and a volunteer decoration.

Probably way out but my first impression was I thought maybe the Lord Lieutenant of somewhere or other.

Interesting. When I looked at his medal ribbons (with the knowledge that these old black and white photos can make dark colours appear light and vice versa) If I was forced to identify the middle two medals I would say the 1902 Coronation medal and the 1902 Mayors and Provosts version. But I would have thought they would be mutually exclusive.

There was a family name put forward that he might be from the Carr-Ellison tribe of Northumberland/North East.

Not an expert & my eyes aren't good enough to make out the buttons, but if they resemble the Intelligence Corps crown above a rose then they could be H.M. Lieutenants of Counties of England's white metal buttons.

Lord Lieutenant is a good call.

The medals are definitely the Golden Jubilee Medal (1887) with Diamond Jubilee clasp (1897), the Coronation Medal (1902), the Coronation Medal (Mayors and Provosts) (1902) and the Volunteer Decoration. A Knight of the Garter, a Mayor and an officer of the Volunteer Force, that should narrow it down a bit.
