I believe my grandfather Walter Stanley Carlisle was killed in a roof fall at Wollaton colliery.
In Memory

Good Morning.
We read about your website in the Nottingham Post and it was fascinating.

I Have spent some time searching it for information about my grandfather. His name was Walter Stanley Carlisle and I believe he was killed in a roof fall at Wollaton colliery. My Mother's family lived in the cottages known as the Balloon Houses at Trowell cross roads and on his death moved into a council house in Aspley.

 I believe he was the only person killed in the fall. I wondered if you had any information about this event?

Thank-you.
Lesley A Sulley.


Walter Stanley Carlisle lived at 332, Trowell Street, Wollaton. He was caught under a roof fall at Wollaton Colliery aged 33 and unfortunately died 21st Nov 1934. There was an inquest on the 23rd Nov 1934 at Leenside Coroners Court.

My father, Lawrence Lewis, is the last one listed in the Hucknall No1s Mining Memorial
In Memory

Hello there Fionn

My name is Barrie Lewis I am an ex miner of Linby Colliery, may I first congratulate you on your website. I am currently involved in trying to raise funds for a mining memorial in honour of, not just my own father, but countless others who died in our local pits.

My father, Lawrence Lewis, is the last one listed in Hucknall  No1s list so well put together by Alan Beale your website will prove invaluable to us and my efforts to obtain names has been a monumental task and the information collected by Alan is immense and just about the best that there is.

Well done to all involved

Kind Regards Barrie Lewis.

William Fogg - Death as result of fallof coal at Cossall Colliery on 24th Sept 1907
In Memory

I saw your article in today’s Nottingham Post and visited your web-site.

Although not a miner myself I come from a long line of mining stock which originated in Lancashire and in the early 1900’s they served in many pits in Nottingham.

My great grandfather William Fogg died in 1907 as a result of a fall at Cossall Colliery. He was a Journeyman joiner, living in Ilkeston and was working at Cossall Colliery on scaffolding, fell 11 feet on 24th Sept 1907 and died as a result of his injuries on 10th October 1907.

I would be interested to learn of any other details you may have concerning this accident.

Rodney Fogg


William Fogg lived at 56, Burr Lane, Ilkeston, Derbyshire. He was 60 when he was crushed by a fall of coal at Cossal Pit on the 21 Sep 1909. He died 10 Oct 1907, the inquest at Ilkeston Hospital was on the following day.

My Grandfather, Herbert Smith
In Memory

I have been researching the death of my Grandfather, Herbert Smith, who died at Gedling Colliery in 1924. It has been classified under Fatal Accident Number 43 but for some reason, it has been omitted from the on line data base.

Regards,

Tom Smith


Thank you very much Tom for the addition, unfortunately names need to be collected from a wide range of sources so names do get missed.

My Great Grandfather James Hewitt Hardy
In Memory

Hello,
my name is Helen Bayliss and I have been researching my great grandfather James Hewitt Hardy who worked at Cossall Colliery in the late 19th century and died in 1920 in a mining accident. On your database he is listed as being crushed by tubs, but having looked at a newspaper from the time he was crushed by the lift; which according to him came down without the warning bell sounding. He died of his injuries several days later, just thought I'd add a correction.

Regards

Helen


Thank you very much Helen for the correction.

My Uncle Daniel Inman Eyre
In Memory

Hi,
My uncle Daniel Inman Eyre was electrocuted at Clifton Colliery.

This is the photo that I have of Daniel Eyre taken just before he was electrocuted.    I have marked him and the lady sitting next to him with the baby is his wife Alice, she is nursing their baby daughter Phoebe who was born in January 1909. Daniel was born in 1884.

This photo is my grandparents Daniel and Eliza Eyre with most of their family. I marked a little boy who is my father Samuel.

If I can help more please let me know.

Regards

Robert Norris Ballard (24yrs) died on the 20th October 1931
In Memory

Dear Sir

I have a death to add to the list for Bilsthorpe Colliery in Nottinghamshire.

Robert Norris Ballard (24yrs) died on the 20th October 1931. 'Accidentally killed in Bilsthorpe Colliery on the 20th October 1931 by the keeling over of a piece of coal which crushed his head against a pit prop.'

No post-mortem, Coroner A. F. Franks Newark district - County of Nottinghamshire.

I wonder if this chap - my grandfather - could be added to the list.

Many thanks

Iain Ballard
