Rank: Private
Number: 16265
Unit: 12th Battalion CHESHIRE Regiment
Date of Death: 18 September 1918
Age: 24
Cemetery: Doiran Memorial, Greece

Military records show that Joseph was born in the parish of All Saint's Church, Stockport. This is understood to have been in Heaton Norris. The family history website, FreeBMD, notes that the birth of a Joseph Henry Turner was registered at Stockport between October and December 1892. This is probably the same man.

He volunteered for the army, at Stockport and his service number suggests that this was in September 1914. He was killed in fighting at the Battle of Doiran and has no known grave.
