Coal Miners


Recommended Posts

The West Yorkshire Coalowners Association kept minute books on board meetings throughout the war. They are available through Leeds University Library Special Collections. They detail much information about strikes, pit-props, pay & conditions, rescue stations etc. Those wishing to avoid the Derby Scheme would have gone before the local board and very often details appear in local newspapers.
