Roll of Coal Miners, 1911

This roll is in two parts. In the first part the names were obtained from the 1911 Census (2 April 1911) and in the second part they were mostly obtained from Slater's Trade Directory. Some names may occur in both parts and the roll does not purport to be complete. Unless stated otherwise, the men were all coal miners, that is, hewers of coal working underground.
