Sam Cocking, My Great Uncle Died At Creswell - Looking For A Photo Of Him
In Memory

HI
I note on your website there are a number of images of men who died at the Cresswell Disaster.

Sam Cocking was my Grandfathers brother and I wondered if you had any pictures of him. My Grandfather was James (Jim) Cocking.
 
Thank you and best wishes

Sam Cocking, Was My Grandad
In Memory
Hi,
I was browsing the site and I noticed that Darren Allsebrook asked for a photo of Sam Cocking.

I am Sam's grandaughter. He had lots of brothers and sisters so I don't know his side of the family well at all. I appreciate that you can't give me Darren's contact details, but I would be happy for you to display the attached photo I have of Sam on your website and, if possible, let him know. Also I'm happy for him to have my contact details if he asks.

Thanks for putting up and maintaining the website. I never knew Grandad but still visit the grave once a year so I don't forget.

Sarah

Also I have attached the Memorial Service leaflet. I inherited Gran's copy, it lists the names of all who died, so if you think there is a more general place on the website it can go I am happy that it isn't just linked to Grandad's entry.

Best wishes.

Sarah

Looking for some info about my father Leonard Haines, he worked in the Notts coal field 1929-63

Hi I am looking for some information about my father Leonard Haines who worked in the Nottinghamshire coal field from 1929 to 1963. The last pit he worked at was Creswell colliery. He was working at Creswell when the 1950 disaster happened.

I am looking for any information about my father in this time period while he worked down the pit, please could you point me in the right direction anyone that may have any records about my father’s time down the pit. Please could you also locate my father’s records for an accident he had while working at pit where he broke his back. (Not sure which pit).
Kind regards

Tim Kitson Haines

My Great Grandfather William Mellish Was Killed In The Creswell Colliery Disaster

Hello, I'm currently researching my family tree and was looking for information relating to my Great Grandfather. I was going to copy and paste the paragraph about him when I noticed a mistake in it.

William Mellish of Duchess Street, Creswell, Steel supervisor, left behind his widow, 2 daughters and 1 son. Thought I'd mention it as in the paragraph written about him it states '1 daughter, 1 son’.

Thank you
Vicky Simons
