While researching an enquiry on a mining accident I came across a really useful resource in the library catalogue. ‘Mining Deaths in Great Britain‘ by Ian Winstanley has been published in seven volumes and covers the period 1850-1914. Details of the accidents have been taken from the Reports of the Mines Inspectors, as well as local newspapers. Information provided includes dates of the accidents, names of the pits, where the pit was situated and the age of the victim, if known. Each volume includes an alphabetical list of surnames.
