World War 1 – Audley Combatants with Forename A to C

 

The aim of the World War 1 pages in the Audley Family History website is to list all the people with the Audley & Aidley surnames who were combatants in World War 1 and to  provide a Tag Number so that their individual history can be linked to one of the Family Histories detailed within the ‘Family Tree’ pages on this website. Also included within these listings are a  few individuals who did not have the Audley surname but do have the name Audley name  as one of their forenames.  The individuals are listed in alphabetical order of their forenames and where only the initials of the individual is known they listed at the beginning of those people whose forename begins with the same initial letter.

The information on this page has been compiled from a number of sources including; the Imperial War Museum website; British Army, Service & Pension records where they survive (many have been destroyed by fire) and Medal Roll Records from a well known subscription website.  For those people where service records or pension records survive there is usually sufficient information to identify the individual within the family trees developed on this website. Where service and and pension records do not exist the identification of the individual is purely based on the individuals name, in some cases such as where the individual only has a single forename, which frequently occurs it has not been possible to identify the individual.

If you have any additional information about these people and are willing to share that information with us please contact us through the website contact page.
