Old paper cutting
« on: Saturday 19 May 18 14:30 BST (UK) »
Hi,
have been trying to get my hands on a old newspaper article from Warrington, Lancashire. It would have been around May 1970 and had a picture of a Thomas Francis Mitchell and it goes on to say that he had died and that he had worked at the Vulcan foundry works and his age at death (87) but sadly I have no idea which  newspaper it was in, any help would be great.

Got a very nice reply from the editor who tells me the said newspapers are all in the Warrington library  so I guess it will be out of my reach unless I can find someone who has access to the place. :-\

my emphasis

Not neccessarily so.
You could try contacting them at the address HERE Scroll down and click on Warrington Library.
The site also contains a list of document collections that are held.
Active links are now (after 13/04/2018) indicated by bold red italics. Just click on them.
The only stupid question is the one not asked
