Albert Edward Anstey World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Albert Edward Anstey of the Exminster Ansteys, who “in the early months of the war the reports of the German atrocities in Belgium made such an impression on him that he felt it his duty to offer his services to do something, at all events, to prevent the Huns setting foot in this country [England] as invaders” and was then “wounded in the Holy Land operations” in November 1917.

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.
