Local newspapers digitised on BNA

A summary, as of 24th November 2022, of which newspapers are available on the British Newspaper Archive, that may have articles about Mitcham.

It can be useful to browse the newspapers if a general date for a story is known, as sometimes the digitisation hasn’t worked properly, and so can’t be found in a search. When clicking on a newspaper link below, click on the year range offered and that will take you to the search page for that period in that newspaper. Then you can home in on the date required.
