Huthwaite is a small village in Nottinghamshire, England, located to the west of Mansfield, close to the Derbyshire border. Before 1907 the village was known as Hucknall-under-Huthwaite.

The population in 1800 was about 500 but soon started to grow with the opening of Hucknall Colliery, a drift mine at the bottom of Blackwell Road. The "Miners Arms" public house is believed to have been the manager's cottage. This mine was worked for around 50 years. It closed due to flooding. In 1877 a new mine called New Hucknall Colliery was opened which employed 500 people. By 1881 the population of the village had grown to over 2000. By 1912 the workforce had increased to over 1,300 but the main industry in the village had become the manufacture of hosiery products.

The closure of the majority of mines in the area, which included New Hucknall Colliery in the early 1980s, and the off shoring of hosiery jobs led to large amounts of unemployment. However today this has been largely rectified.


The Following Detail Is Transcribed From Ashfield Cemetery Records Online

This covers 1,000 internments including cause of death I have replaced each person’s name with their gender that detail is on the original documents. The period covered spans the end of the Ninetieth and the beginning of the Twentieth Century’s. The area was still called Hucknall under Huthwaite, its population doubling to over 4,000 people, from the sinking of New Hucknall pit in 1877. Agriculture and Hosiery were the other main occupations of the townspeople. The mortality rate for infants and children is alarming by our standards today, almost a 3-1 ratio between adults and children. I have counted any one above 12 as an adult as that was the school leaving age for that period.

The childhood diseases mentioned below are no longer the killers they once were with modern medical treatments making them a rarity when a death occurs.
