Free Document Downloads

Your trustees are keen to make more archive material available to a wider audience. As an experiment we have scanned several smaller original documents and these are to be found on the shop page. Order as normal, but no payment is needed and you will get an emailed download link. The same applies to five new NER Fact Sheets, kindly prepared by our member Nick Fleetwood. The Finding Aids previously accessed via the Archive page have also been moved to the free section of the shop. Please let us have any comments – or even scans which you might want to share!
