Thorley Articles in the Herts and Essex Observer


The Rhodes Museum in Bishop's Stortford holds volumes containing original copies of the editions of the Herts & Essex Observer from 1910 to 1923.

I have been transcribing the articles relating to Thorley in these editions as part of a larger project which the museum is undertaking concerning the First World War.

The following links are to pages that present the transcriptions thus far completed in date order for the years indicated.

Individual pages can be searched using a web browser's 'Find' function.



The newspapers for the period from October 1911 to December 1913 and from 1920 onwards are currently undergoing treatment by conservators to ensure that they remain available for the foreseeable future.

The resulting gaps in the transcriptions will be filled once these are returned.

Further information about the museum, and about its WW1 projects looking at the wartime town through the eyes of the local police, can be accessed through the following links:
