Gorton Reporter 1873-1918, 1939-1970
« on: Friday 07 December 07 00:36 GMT (UK) »

Apparently there are archives for the Gorton Reporter !

Does anybody happen to know if you can only get them at the Manchester Library ?

Hello Annie
According to the Manchester Council website . ( www.manchester.gov.uk) the years you have stated
are available on microfilm but some years may not be complete.
Local studies section is in the Central Library , St Peters Square , Manchester .

Hello Annie
Not sure whether they would be available elsewhere . I have E mailed the library several times and they are very helpful . E mail if not aware is archiveslocalstudies [-- at --] manchester.gov.uk.

Hello Annie
Its me again . Sorry I misread your question . Of course you know that the Manchester library has the archives . To try and make amends , I live 5 mins from the Reporter Offices for my area in Stalybridge , Tameside . I used to live in Gorton myself and as you probably know the reporters for the respective areas all merged several years ago . I can go into the office in Stalybridge and ask them if you like ?

Hi Eric !

Thank you for your multiple posts !!  :D :D :D :D :D

What I'm really looking for is information about soldiers in WW1 ..... most newspapers gave daily or at least weekly lists of men killed in action or who were thought missing !

Some had family stories some had pictures of the men ..... but I can't find anything for Gorton and I wondered if they only had their archives on film that you had to physically sit down in front of .....  :-\

Hello Annie
I will call in to the office and have a word . They may have a central place where the actual newspapers are stored and can be accessed . I go into the local studies library at Ashton under Lyne fairly regularly and of course we have the museum of the Manchester Regiment in Ashton that is very interesting to visit .
