John Anstey (b 1884) World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of John Anstey of the Dyrham Ansteys, who signed up for service in early 1916 and was posted to the 5th Works Company of the Royal Berkshire Regiment; thence to the 16th Infantry Works Company Devon Regiment; and finally to the 310th Home Service Works Company of the Labour Corps, serving throughout in the UK.

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.
