Does anyone Remember My grand-mother, Mrs Anne Elizabeth STEWART.
Stewart O'BrienI am looking for information about my grand-mother, Mrs Anne Elizabeth STEWART.
She was a nurse at the Creswell Colliery in 1950, in fact I think she used to be in charge of the medical centre at the pit.
She was also a midwife in the area.

Dear all.
My grandfather Lawrence Brady was in attendance at this fire as part of the rescue team from area 5.
Has anyone any knowledge of him or any pit related photographs. He was employed in the Mansfield Collieries, Derbyshire and surrounding.

Many thanks
Karen Wright.

Hi
I am trying to trace anyone who knew Donald Fletcher who was awarded the Edward Medal at Cresswell in 1926 - or anyone who remembers Cresswell at all and a publication which had a section called Cresswell Notes.

Many Thanks

Dear Fionn
I am researching my ancestry on my maternal grandfather’s side. I am researching this side of the family because of the unusual name of ORVICE.

My mother could remember Uncle Harry dieing in the Creswell Mining disaster. My great uncle Harry was in fact William Henry Orvice.

Upon “Googling” his name I came upon your wonderful site and my Uncle’s photograph. It was uncanny because it was like seeing my grandfather again.

Thank you for such a wonderful web site and I will be telling my mum and aunt to have a look at your web site.

Regards
Claire Jakins

William Henry Orvice was my great uncle. My grandfather died of a heart attack not long after but I was told years ago that William was spotted alive but went back to help a friend.
