Unit: UNKNOWN OVERSEAS FORCE

The name F L Joy is inscribed on the Stockport War Memorial as serving with an "overseas" force, but it has proved impossible to identify him with any degree of certainty.

The most likely man, although there is nothing in his record to directly connect him with the Stockport area, is a Canadian soldier - Frederick Joy, 2nd Battalion, Canadian Pioneers. He died on 18 March 1916 and is buried at Ridge Wood Cemetery (5 kilometres south west of the town centre of Ypres in Belgium). The Commonwealth War Graves Commission records that his father was also called Frederick. His wife, Euphemia, was living at 6 Egerton Street, Gorton, Manchester in the early 1920s. She may, of course, have previously lived in Stockport.
