Keighley News

The 'Keighley News' newspaper archive is held at Keighley Library in the form of bound copies*, selected articles in scrapbooks, and on microfilm reels which can be viewed on special viewers in the library.

Microfilm editions of the Great War period covering from the start of 1914 to the end of 1918 are available here on the Keighley Library on-line storage

*The bound copies from the Great War period are no longer available to view, as they are now very fragile.

    We have a copy of the entire Keighley News archive for the Great War period 1914 to 1918 and the first three months of 1919. This means we can do look-ups to see if a man is listed. We are gradually indexing every man as they appear in the 'Local War Casualties' column, and if their photograph appears in the newspaper. The quality of photographs varies considerably due to poor scanning and poor quality newsprint, which suffered from shortages during the war period. Andy Wade.
