Cyril Horace Thomas, Mayor between 1944-1946 During 2022, with the help of  Calne Town Council, Calne Heritage Centre volunteer and Trustee, Tim Havenith,  digitised the available portraits of the Calne Mayors that are on display in the Council Chambers of Calne Town Hall. This document includes available portraits from Borough Mayors between 1836-1974 and Town Mayors from 1974 - 2023. Appended with an index of mayors.

UPDATED: Check out our Collections Catalogue Index

Check out our collections PDF updated to May 2023, featuring over 2460 items. We are adding to the collection all of the time, so be aware that even if you cannot find what you’re looking for in this version of the index, we may still have items of interest to you. Along with adding to our collection, we are always increasing the quality of previous accession information, which includes adding images and descriptions to items added previously. With that in mind, if you'd like to help us ensure that our fabulous collections are added to our database, making them accessible to researchers, visitors, and our volunteer staff, please do get in touch. We're always looking for data entry and digitisation volunteers. Check out the very first index of our collections database by downloading it  here .
