Caxton registers
« on: Friday 11 July 08 10:26 BST (UK) »
A friend of mine has been looking for the Caxton Registers. She has tried Huntingdon and Cambridge without success.   

Can someone suggest where she can find them! :D

Many thanks Tempsford and Jebber.  I have passed your replies to my friend.  Sounds as though she missed or was given the wrong info at Cambridge.
