Robert John Pearce Anstey World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Robert John Pearce Anstey of the Bradninch Ansteys, who signed up for active service right at the outset of World War One in July 1914 with the Royal Army Medical Corps, and “had several narrow escapes with his life” serving on the Western Front in France according to letters he wrote home.

Anybody who has information they would like to add to this biography, please contact us at

Anybody who has researched their Anstey ancestors’ wartime heroics and wishes for their findings to be uploaded to the Anstey story project website, feel free to contact us.
