Ever wondered where Huddersfield got its name from? Why Huddersfield's train station is so grand for a small line and who paid for its construction?

You send us the questions and we find the answers for you, as simple as that.

We'll publish a selection of your questions each week and you vote for the one you want answering.

How does it work?

Readers ask the questions, and choose the ones they want us to investigate first.

Questions posted will be available to view on our site.

What do I have to do?

Post your question using the comments section at the bottom of the page - or tweet your question to @Examiner, including the hashtag #askexaminer.

Why do you need to know who I am?

Apart from the fact that we like talking to our readers, where possible we want to invite you to get involved and work with us on investigating your question.

What will you investigate?

All sorts of things about issues and topics in Huddersfield that matter to readers.

Whether it’s crime and policing, things to do with our environment, how things work, or things that you’ve just always wondered about, we want to hear about it.

What won’t you investigate?

We won’t waste time on looking into personal agendas, or questions that are unfair, or don’t meet our standards of conduct and journalism.

Also, we won’t accept questions about Examiner policies, or our parent company, Trinity Mirror, or about our staff.

So, get your thinking caps on and send us your questions using the comments section - or tweet us using #askexaminer and see your question in the twitter feed below.
