THE ORIGINS OF SILVERWOOD MINERS

UNKNOWN COLLIERIES

 

It is not clear which colliery the men below worked before signing on at Silverwood. Hopefully in the near future we can clarify exactly the name of the collieries from the clues below. Where a miners entry has a link [ more ] , that link will take you to further information on that miner.

Please note that some street names occurred in different localities, as in Doncaster Road which could be in Rotherham, Dalton, Thrybergh, or Hooton Roberts. School Street can be Thrybergh or Eastwood Rotherham.

 

Where locality is known it will be recorded below. If you know of the locality of a street below that has no locality named please contact me so the list can be completed. Some Street Locations are listed here [ This site ]

 

The list is in a timeframe format per month and year The month and year is when they  signed on at Silverwood. If you know where any of the men below worked please contact me.

 

Please note there is a protection on these pages containing the list.
