In order to track the button click on Page_Load, I would suggest that you use GridTemplateColumn with a Button in the ItemTemplate. Then on Page_Load the request event target will contain the ID of this button.
ANother option is to use GridHyperLinkColumn and set its NavigateUlr property so the use is automatically redirected to the edit page.
Check it out and let me know if this works for you.
