I need a gift for my partner, his father worked at Bickershaw mine all his life.

Hi I’m looking for a gift for my partner for fathers day, his father worked at Bickershaw mine all his life unfortunately he died about 15 years ago. I was looking for something related to this mine to remind us all of him as he has a grandaughter he never met. I have no idea where to start looking and wondered if you could give me some advice.

Regards
Sally

Subject: Appropriate Gift.....

With regard to Sally's enquiry on a suitable gift, she could try looking on Ebay under mining memorabilia, and see if there is anything related to Bickershaw or that part of the coalfield.  Generally there will be plates, lamps, badges etc but not necessarily from the right area or pit.  Local antique shops may also have something - but watch the price, especially on oil lamps.

For a more generic gift she could visit the National Mining Museum near WAkefield which has loads of stuff.

Rgds,
Joe.

Hi
Can you please point me in the right direction? I am searching for a sketch of coal miners to give my friend as a gift.

I was very taken with the work of Bill Bennett but I have been unable to find any of his work apart from on your site.

Many thanks

Tina Spencer.

You could try Lee Phillips at leephillips@btconnect.com he was marketing Bills work.

Or there is David Sawyer at dave@davidjohnsawyer.co.uk. He has a painting on the page:- http://www.healeyhero.co.uk/rescue/hobbies/sawyer.htm

Or Lydia Solomon, at www.lydiasart.com email lydia@artsociety.net

Artist George Bissell, Any Information?

I have just seen a very powerful signed charcoal drawing of miners by George Bissell, an artist featured on your site and wonder if you have any information about him. Thank you.

Yours
Dr Iain Ferris


The only artist I can find, on the site with charcoal drawings is Bill Bennett and can be found at:-

NCB 10 Years Medal (Mines Rescue Service)

Hi

I wonder if you can help us. We are a large medal dealer based in Yorkshire and have been asked to have a plaque made which includes the coat of arms which appears on the N.C.B. 10 years Mines Rescue Service Medal.

We have been given a photocopy of the medal, but unfortunately it is in black and white. Inscribed on the reverse of the medal is: R. Williams Wakefield Rescue Station. We urgently need a colour version of the picture of this medal so we can have the plaque made as it is to be presented at the Yacht Club here in Bridlington. Any help you can give would be very much appreciated.

Regards
