400 World War One Hero Biographies Uploaded

We have reached another major milestone in the Anstey Story Project – we have now completed 400 biographies of ‘Anstey’, Ansty’, ‘Anstee’ and ‘Anstie’ heroes who fought in World War One, and uploaded them to the Roll of Honour. The gentlemen (and a few ladies) that we have currently documented connect to dozens of different ‘Anstey’, Ansty’, ‘Anstee’ and ‘Anstie’ sub-branches across the world, but they all put their lives on the line in defence of the British Empire.

This venture has thus far taken us around twenty months, and given that we are now very confident indeed that there are a total of around 500 World War One ‘Anstey’, Ansty’, ‘Anstee’ and ‘Anstie’ heroes to document in total, this part of our project likely has around three months left to go until completion.

Once again we appeal for help – 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 at research@theansteystory.com.
