Thanks for that link.

Any other new links on this subject would be helpful

This subject has not been to well documented, not like the 
WW1 & 2. I feel, this was second way that  men & boys of the families were killed together while working for their country and like the wars, some never to be found. Without them what would we have done, may be lost the wars. Coal was needed to keep the Ships & Trains moving  for our troops

Yes I agree that many families lost male members of the family in mining accidents,and what a terrible way to go.Many were lost in mining accidents in the war years,and those who survived the war underground, faced years of feeling like they did not contribute to the war effort as the members of the forces did.Many men were made to work in the pits ( Beven Boys ),after putting their hands up to join the forces with their mates,they were allocated to work the mines.My Dad was one of these.It is only recently that their sacfrices have been acknowledged.

Thankyou very much for this info.

My father was a miner for 25 years, right up until the Pit closed in 1989, (Sutton Colliery in Sutton-in-Ashfield, for those who really want to know!!) and was fortunate that he didnt suffer any serious accidents. My Dad's side of the family were also miners from Staffs. going back 4 generations.

After looking at this info provided, i think that one of the men on these lists is a relation of mine. So thankyou very much for helping me out!!

Best Wishes,

Sue Harvey
