A limited company formed to take forward the candle-making business of Stair Dickson; a co-partnership in which Stair Dickson, Alexander Dickson, and Charles Dickson were partners, previously based in Dalkeith, but with land leased to build the Edgefield Candleworks, Loanhead. The company were candle manufacturers and tallow makers, and while there is no evidence that they were involved in processing of shale oil products at Edgefield, the premises are close to the Pentland and Straiton oil works, and share a site with premises marked on OS maps as Eldin Oil Works.
