Coal Mine Workers Memories


From: Colm Sweet
Pit Name:Cwm
Location:Merthyr Tydfil My grandfather Jesse Sweet worked in a colliery near Merthyr Tydfil around 1920 and was subsequently laid off possibly when the pit closed. My Great grandfather also worked as a pitman in the area and lost part of his arm in an accident possibly the 1927 disaster at Cwm. I would like to find out what pit / colliery they worked at and any records of where they lived. Thanks
