Morning all

Does anyone know of anywhere where i'd be able to find out what pits my grandfathers worked in?  Are there employee lists anywhere?

Thanks

The first thing to find out is where he was living, and then narrow down the list of colleries from there.

If any employee lists are to be found, probably Gwent Archives?
