Alfred Anstey (b 1874) World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Alfred Anstey of the Washfield Ansteys, who “served with the [Devonshire] battalion in India and Mesopotamia until invalided back home in 1916. He took part in the operations connected with the attempt to relieve Kut and the climate and hardships of the campaign seriously affected his constitution.”

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.
