Francis James Anstey World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Francis James Anstey of the Castle Cary Ansteys, who was a long time Sea Captain and was in charge of the steamer ‘Branksome Chine‘, at the time carrying coal for the Government, when it was torpedoed off Beachy Head in 1915 by the Germans.

Anybody who has information they would like to add to this biography please contact us at research@theansteystory.com.

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.
