Hello,
Thank you so much for all the replies re. this newspaper's archive. I have
at last received a reply >from Gale's feedback form as follows:

So I'm just waiting to hear >from them re. the nearest subscription to
Lancaster/Preston (neither of these libraries could help beyond indexed
microfilms).
from everyone's replies, I wonder if Lancaster University has a copy...and
will post their response.
Thank you again and thanks to the lady who originally mentioned that it was
free online for a week. Through this posting, I then discovered my gx2
grandfather's death notice, found a copy of his death certificate in France
and this noted his parents names (amazingly!) - which provided an official
document linking him to his parents, sybling, grandparents and great
grandparents and his home community in Germany.
Best wishes,
