Almost nothing is known about Joseph, except that army records published after the war indicate he had been born in Stockport and still lived in the town at the time he decided to travel to Aldershot to enlist into the army.

He died, after being wounded, at the Main Dressing Station, operated by the Field Ambulance of the Royal Army Medical Corps, which was located next to where he is now buried.
