Are there lists of workers who worked in Collieries?  My ancestors worked in one of the Deny Collieries  and I wondered if any records existed?  :)

Would that be in Northern Ireland?

If so maybe GRONI or PRONI would be worth looking at?

Google doesn't recognise "Deny Colliery"?

Sorry everyone it is 'Denby' Colliery.  But I think there are two in Denby.  My ancestors lived at Smithy Houses.   :-\

"Denby (Drury - Lowe) colliery (North Derbyshire) sunk 1839 - 1842 by Robert Holden was closed in February 1968 after 126 years.
Located at Smithy Houses to the north west of Denby village."
