WE very much appreciated your article 'Burned For a Banned Bible', which appeared in the Ely Standard on January 26. Your article pertaining to the Protestant Martyrs of Ely was kindly drawn to our attention by an Ely resident.

We ourselves convene an annual meeting in their memory in the Ely Cathedral Centre on the first Monday in October.

We have long-held a desire to see the erection of a memorial to the memory of the martyrs and this aspiration is also shared by some local residents of Ely. It would be a very positive and helpful thing if you and your colleagues of the Ely Standard were able to give any help in attracting attention and support in this matter.
