There is a portland headstone in Kirk Michael churchyard IOM.

It is inscribed 20753 Rifleman A E Joyce The King's Liverpool Regiment

28 February 1915 aged 49

Nearby was Knockaloe internment camp - which would suggest he might have been one of the guards.

Any information as to his background would be appreciated?

Thanks

His service records show that he 'died at Knockaloe from heart failure'.
