NOTE: This volume is not published by BDL but by the South Gloucestershire Mines Research Group.
Years ago when the author sought to put ‘flesh on the bones’ of her coalmining ancestors who ‘wrought’ in East Bristol and South Gloucestershire, she had no idea that the research would expand to include the workmates who shared their hard and dangerous lives. This book, which for the most part spotlights individual miners through small cameos, is the result. It is hoped that it will provide an essential reference source for genealogists as well as general readers with an interest in an important local industry which endured from the Middle Ages until the mid-20th century but is now all but forgotten.
