Joe was the eldest son of Joseph and Mary Knott, 41 Caister Street, Brinnington. The 1901 Census records that he then had 4 younger siblings - Alice (5), Elsie (3), Fred (9) and Hilda (1).

Nothing is known of his military service during the War. However, it is known that he was wounded at some point and was either in hospital in the UK or at home when he died. The injuries must have incurred some considerable time before his death as the Regiment had transferred him to the Deport unit rather than retaining him on the strength of a fighting battalion.
