Why Audley Family History?

 

We ensure that all our data is checked and correct, this is a hobby to the owners of the site and therefore taking our time and getting it right is what we are known for.

 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 as 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.
