    Hi all,

    I have been sorting out the effects of a late relative, who was a keen
    photographer. Amongst his effects there were several rolls of old (30
    years +), exposed film. I know bog all about photography and had
    assumed that these were beyond hope. However, I took the Kodak C-41
    process films to a local developers and got them developed, thinking
    I'd spend £8 and get blank films. They came out, some with images
    missing, some with a red tint throughout, but all with some good
    images of family members long dead.

    So, I'm now left with the Ilford FP4 films, which I understand to be
    monochrome. There is information on the net about developing old
    films. Can anyone point me in the direction of a developing lab which
    could develop these and make any necessary alterations to the usual
    process to take account of their age. They're likely to be blank but
    the other ones proved to be of great sentimental value so I'm prepared
    to take a risk. All suggestions gratefully received. I'm around East
    London/Essex, where the M11 ends and the urban jungle begins.

    Thanks. I should have said, I e-mailed them a couple of days ago. No
    reply as of yet. Anywhere else?
