Can we have more papers from the Liverpool and Wirral area (Merseyside)
There appears to be a lack of newspapers from the Merseyside areas of Liverpool and The Wirral. When can we expect to see more please.
As luck would have it, we have put in a request to look at adding the Wallasey & Wirral Chronicle – we will investigate what is available.

The Crosby Herald would be a good edition to tyhe archive, as it is no longer published.
We have the Echo
Online but we be great to see the Wirral Globe or the Liverpool Post added
Please add the Liverpool Post

More information about Oakfield Resential School,in Oakfield Avenue,Liverpool in 1970. More about (Oakfield it was a Victorian house,Elkanah Healey and his family lived there. But not for Long he died Elkanah.His children came orphaned,when the mum died A Little bit later.Thanks anybody got any photos or pics of the House (Victorian).
The Liverpool Post would be good to run alongside the Echo
Get the Echo online right through to the 90s
Post and echo 1980s please
Add the Liverpool Echo and Post upto the 1990s would be excellent
There is a gaping hole in Liverpool coverage, and can only hope that digitization of Liverpool Daily Post for the non-war-years happens.
Your request to digitise the Wallasey and Wirral Chronicle is misguided. This title is already on microfilm and therefore not in danger. Unlike the Wallasey New or indeed The Birkenhead News or Birkenhead Advertiser which covered the activities of a much larger conurbation and have no microfilm substitute available in the British Library. Surely these titles should take priority.

Can we have Liverpool newspapers for date range from 1900 to 1910? These seem to be missing.

Very good questions requiring REAL answers, actions and common sense priorities – instead of just waffle, evasion and more issues of the Sussex Agricultural Express!
It is disgraceful that, after 2 and a half years of subscription, there is nothing at all for Birkenhead (Where are the Birkenhead and Cheshire Advertiser 1863-1930 & Birkenhead News 1877-1985?) and nothing for Liverpool in 1836, 1900-1913, and 1919-2014.
It is very slippery & dishonest to claim 1850-1949 for the Liverpool Daily Post & Liverpool Echo when you only actually provide 23 out of the 200 years:
Liverpool Daily Post 1855-1869,1914-1918 (NOT 1850-1949! - 19 years NOT 100 years!!!)
Liverpool Echo 1884 one issue! 1914-1918 (NOT 1850-1949! - 4 years NOT 100 years!!!)
Also, Liverpool Mercury 1811-1899 (1836 missing)
