London’s East London Mosque is perhaps unique in Western Europe to house an archive collection documenting its activities and progress since 1910. Two recent  distinguished visitors to the Archive were Lord Egremont, Chairman of the National Manuscripts Conservation Trust (NMCT), a distinguished biographer in his own right, and Charles Sebag- Montefiore, Treasurer of the NMCT. As a result of a grant from the NMCT, the mosque has been able to conserve its Minutes Book, which starts with the minutes of a meeting held in Caxton Hall on 19th December 1910. Skimming through the archives during his visit, Lord Egremont was pleasantly surprised to find references to his grandfather, Lord Winterton, who served as a trustee of the London Mosque Fund in the 1940s! The Archive is open to researchers – click here.
