Edward Fayle was born in Peel, Isle of Man.
He served as an able seaman in the Deck Department on board the Lusitania. He survived the sinking and was rescued from the sea afterwards.
However, in an article concerning the sinking printed in the 'Isle of Man Times' on 15 May 1915, Able Seaman Fayle was reported missing. Fortunately for him and his family, this proved to be an error.
