I'd Be Interested In Knowing More About Gedling Pit

Hi, my name is Neal. I live in Carlton and I'm very interested in Gedling pit. I walk up there once a week to see the work being done before the site changes too much. Every time I go there I try to place the buildings I've seen on old photos and judge where the shafts where. I'm just wondering if you ever visit the site as I'd be interested in knowing more about it.
Kind regards
Neal

My great grandfather Enoch Henshaw of Heanor Derbyshire died age 26 years in 1881

I have been researching my family history and discovered my great grandfather Enoch Henshaw of Heanor Derbyshire died age 26 years in 1881.  Occupation miner but at the time of his death was blind I don’t know if he was  blinded as a result of a accident down the mines are there records of people seriously injured but not killed in the mines.

I know the Henshaw family was a large family in Ilkeston, Heanor and Eastwood areas but would love to hear from anyone who has any information about him.

My maternal grandmother was his daughter and only 3 at the time of his death.

My own father was a miner at Gedling for 52 years 1921 to 1973 his name was George Henry Clements known as little Wemmy.

Yours
Barbara Piggott
