We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Richard Anstey of the St Luke Holburn Ansteys, who served throughout the conflict with the 1st Battalion of the West Riding Regiment in India and Mesopotamia, contracting typhoid and malaria “due to the climactic conditions” whilst in India.

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.
