 World War 1 Audley Combatants - From Former 'Colonial' Countries

 

The aim of the World War 1 pages in the Audley Family History website is to list all the people with the Audley & Aidley surname who were combatants in World War 1 and to  provide a link (Tag Number) so that their family history can be identified with in the Family Histories detailed within the 'Family Tree' pages on this website. Included within these listings are a  number of other people who did not use the Audley but had the name Audley included within their name generally ad a forename. 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.

 

Please note that the information contained within these pages is our first draft and the data is still to be reviewed.
