Comment on A local mining accident – can you help? by Pedro
Thanks Reg for telling it as it was, and for me it puts some writers of coal mining history to shame. When coal owners, living out in the sticks, “gave” employment to thousands they took the bodies and souls of the miners.

Some repetition here, but here goes … Solomon Fox and family were, going on the 1911 census, somewhat nomadic. Two children were born at Lichfield Road, Brownhills – Lois Rose 1900, William 1911. Two at Bridge Street, Clayhanger – Elizabeth Dora 1903 and Solomon 1905. Another at Oak Lane, Boney Hay – John 1910. In 1901 they lived at...

Can’t see anything in newspapers concerning accident. Quick look at Ancestry shows Sollomon in the 1901 census as loader underground and with daughter Lois of 9 months. In 1911 he is in Clayhanger Road with William (under 1 month) and Lois (10) both born Lichfield Street Brownhills. There is also Solomon (6) and Elizabeth (8) both born in Bridge...

A couple of days ago I asked for information about a local mining accident, suffered by the Grandfather of reader Gill Joesbury, but the request it was a bit of a mission impossible, as we didn't have a name to go on - since then, Gill has now been in touch with more information. Continue reading →

Reg, that could be a treasure just like yourself! Some accidents have been mis-reported by historians, and the Lichfield Mercury seems to have been, at times, a little economical with the truth. All the best Pedro

Hi Bob, My mom used to clean for a Mr Cooper by the Catholic Church in Brownhills. He worked at Walsall Wood Colliery. and I remember her coming home and saying that he was upset because there had been a fatal accident down the pit I think that this was around 1958ish. When did the pit close? and would this have been the last accident there?

Comment on A local mining accident – can you help? by wyrleyblog
Hi Emma, we have no staffing records for local pre-NCB mines. You would need to check with Staffordshire RO as to what they hold, but prepare for disappointment – staffing records are notorious for treading the primrose path to the everlasting bonfire (an archival term for being chucked out). Of course, you would really need to know dates and the...

Would love to know if there are any records myself my Grandfather William Smith worked in the mines for years also and I think he may have worked at Walsall Wood and Brownhills. Would they have anything at Walsall History Office?

I think you would need to look for the reports of the Mines Inspectors – these would be held at the National Record Office – although copies may exist in local Record Offices (Walsall or Staffordshire Record Office in this case). For this, you would need to know the Colliery name and date (unless you simply browsed). As above, newspapers would...

Comment on Man Killed In Mining Accident by Robert Cutsogeorge
My dear friend Dan would tell me to pray for you instead of the way I would like to respond to you. I know in his heart, even with what you’re saying, he would still hold no animosity towards you. I hope that one day you will be able to find forgiveness in your heart for whatever slight, real or imagined, that you feel Dan might have perpetrated...

Comment on NASA chasing asteroids to manifest a new moon for our...
This is an exceptionally stupid idea. For exceptionally obvious reasons. Accidents happen. Industrial accidents happen often. A mining accident in cislunar space will scatter spacecraft killing debris over the entire Earth/Moon system. Ending our space program for hundreds of years. And if someone drops a big rock on our planet, …game over....

"How did this ever come up? UPS is unionized by the Teamsters. Unionization is supposed to prevent these types of problems, right? The shop steward would have made the company do right." A few years ago there was a mining accident in WV with fatalities. I did wonder how both OSHA and UMW could allow miners to keep working for a company which had a...
