William Thomas Henry Anstey World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of William Thomas Henry Anstey of the Hampton in Arden Ansteys, who enlisted with the 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers as a Private in 1904 and was called up right at the outset of war in August 1914, receiving a gunshot wound which caused “fracture of pelvis left & both feet” at the First Battle of the Aisne in September or early October 1914.

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.
