Have you looked on the British Newspaper archive? Britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk

They have a monthly subscription ffee and you can download results. If you are a member of FindMyPast, you can access it from there.

Check the genealogy discount website before buying a sib, you may find an offer codevfor a reduced prce. FMP and BNA often do 1 month for £1.

From TheNational Archives cost
Also there is a War diary of WW1
Which I am searching for at the
National Archives.
Re:Newspaper,the Daily Northern
Telegraph published a article
In 1915/1916
The Newspaper at this time
Dates only till 1898.

Burnley Newspaper.
A Big Thank you
