John William Anstey World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of John William Anstey of the Shoreditch Ansteys, who signed up for active service very early in the war with the 9th Battalion of the Worcestershire Regiment and fought in the ‘Battle of Sari Bair’ at Anzac Cove, Gallipoli, Turkey in August 1915 (amongst other battles).

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.
