Hi I noticed your mail with family of Mr Bartholomew and thought you might like some additional information I have on him taken from a newspaper article of his accident.
Thomas Bartholomew, 42 of The Green, Royston, died at Barnsley Beckett Hospital, as the result of a fracture of the base of the skull sustained from a sudden fall of roof.
He is featured amongst a list of names I've been assembling for Monckton pits here:-
Hope this is of use.
Also you have this down as 'Holroyd' colliery when it should be 'Hodroyd'
