Subject: Family Tree - What Was Gaffer Chambers Real Name, He Worked At Brinsley Colliery
I am trying to find some information on my Great, Great, Great Grandad.
He worked for Barber and Walker at Brinsley Colliery. He lived on Mansfield Road in Brinsley.
The name that we knew him as was Gaffer Chambers as he was the Pit Gaffer. But what we do not know is his real name.
If you have any information that you could send me regarding Gaffer Chambers this would be fantastic.
Thank You for your help within this matter,

Hi Fionn, In my list of Notts Mines, William Chambers first class certificate 437 was Manager at Brinsley and also Selston from at least 1888-1906 then in 1907 he is listed as Under Manager.
In the same period also named Chambers (related?) Isaac Chambers FC certificate 82 Manager at Watnall Pit
Granville Chambers FC certificate 1,621 Undermanager at Clifton Pit then manager New London Pit
