Frederick William Anstee World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Frederick William Anstee of the Swanbourne Ansteys, who was called up for service at some point during the war, joining the Royal Army Service Corps as a “shoeing smith/farrier“. All we know of his war story is that he was demobilised on 14 March 1919 -presumably there was enormous demand for his “shoeing smith/farrier” skills during the conflict given the huge number of horses used by the Army.

Anybody who has information they would like to add to this biography, or can add information to Frederick’s war story, 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.
