John William Anstee (b 1895) World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of John William Anstee of the Kennford Ansteys, who signed up for service right at the outset of war, was discharged on medical grounds after a few months, but then signed up again in 1916 and served as a Sapper with the Royal Engineers for the rest of the conflict.

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.
