Family history researchers are welcome to contact Cambridge Collection

The Cambridgeshire Collection holds original and microfilm copies of the Ely Standard from 1913 to the present.

Ely Library also holds The Standard on microfilm.

Family history researchers can be directed to us and we can do a limited search through our copies of the 1939 Ely Standard and supply copies of anything found for a fee.

I am happy for you to direct anyone looking for past issues of your, or any other, Cambridgeshire newspapers to the collection.

Anyone interested can write to us or email as below.
