Any Information About 'Gothards' of Barnsley Memorial Postcards?

Dear Fionn and Liz
I have been looking at your wonderful web-site as part of my research on the memorial postcards produced by Gothards of Barnsley c.1910. We have approximately 20 of their collage/montage based postcards in the Collection here at the Museum and we are working on a large exhibition for January 2005 called 'Forget Me Not - Photography & Remembrance'. I have found very little information about the company to date and I am busy reading through various books on mining casualties but would be very pleased to hear from you regarding any information on Gothards or the names of colleagues who think will be able to help.

Thanking you for your time in advance. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely and with best wishes,
Russell Roberts

Hello Fionn,
I have been looking at your mine disaster list and you have nothing down for the years 1907 and 1914.

According to "Warner Gothard" montage postcards there were explosions at the Barrow Colliery, Barnsley on November 15th 1907, 7 persons killed and 9 injured also Wharncliffe-Silkstone (Tankersley, Barnsley) colliery on May 30th 1914, 11 persons killed and 4 injured.

I am researching the Barnsley photographer Warner Gothard, he produced many disaster postcards as listed below, further information on the photographer or postcards requested.

These have now been added, thank you Ken

I expect that you will have seen all of these postcards.

Kind regards,
Ken Keen,
Barnsley, Yorkshire

Hello Fionn,

Re the Hammerend pit disaster postcard, it is in the style of Warner Gothard the Barnsley photographer, could you confirm if it was produced by him since the resolution of the picture is too low to decipher the text.

Kind regards,

Ken Keen, (Barnsley Local History Group).


As far as I know it is a Warner Gothard, the origianls are extremely Rare £80+


As you probably know many coal mining disasters of the early 20th century were covered by the photographer
Warner Gothard
of Barnsley.
You will find an up to date list of all the mining events they covered here: http://www.warnergothard.com

Do you know who owned Pinxton Coke Ovens between 1951-1953.

I understand they closed in 1955.

Any information would be appreciated

Ghosts at Shipley Woodside pit?

Hello there..........after reading a few of the comments made by former employess of this pit, i am writing to ask of any known Ghost Storys attached to this site.

My reason for this strange question is that we have been approached by the now American Adventure Theme park in connection to a large amount of current storys of Ghostly figures of miners with lamps, women and small children being seen by staff and visitors. Any Historical info or sotrys attached to the pit would be advantageous. Were there any recorded disasters, fires or deaths at this pit............

I look forward to hearing from you

David Wharmby

PS Ashley Hall Esq., might have seen a ghost

I Want To Produce A Fleet List Of All Emergency Vehicles Used By The Mines Rescue


Fionn,
By way of introduction I am a fire service historian currently engaged on a project with a colleague to produce a fleet list of all emergency vehicles used by the mines rescue services from the very beginning to the present
day. There are a number of vehicles featured on your web site - generators, winders, rescue tenders, fire engines, etc - but the details are not discernible.

Are you please able to let me know the chassis make and model, body-builder, special equipment manufacturer, year and registration number of any vehicle (or any of these details) for which you have the original pictures.

Can anyone else help with similar information through your site, please?

My interest is primarily in the fire service and its vehicles and my own web site is slanted accordingly. There is an obvious overlap with mines rescue and you might find some useful information on my web site (address below).

Regards,
Roger
