James Henry Anstey World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of James Henry Anstey of the Castle Cary Ansteys, who signed up for active service fairly early in the war and was posted to the 1/13th Battalion (Kensington) London Regiment as a Private. He was then “killed by a sniper in France October 8 1916″ in the front line trenches during the Battle of the Somme near Trônes Wood.

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.
