I'm trying to find out more about Henry Boyce. I know from his army records that he was West Indian and served in the 4th Btn, West Indies Regiment in England

He married Rose Anna (var spellings) Butt in Southampton, England 1895, appears in Essex in the 1911 census and I have his military discharge papers in 1917 + subsequent notification of his death. He has a headstone in Butleigh churchyard, Somerset, England.

So where is he in the earlier censuses; how did he arrive in England; can I find out more about his West Indian roots; what happened to Rose Anna after his death; who were the two deceased children's names mentioned in the 1911 census.

So many unanswered question.

Can anyone fill in any of the gaps or point me in the right direction.
