The South Gloucestershire Mines Research Group have a talk on Wednesday 1 March at about 9:00pm (after the group’s AGM) in the Miners Institute, Coalpit Heath, South Gloucestershire, BS36 2QB.

The talk is by DP Lindegaard, author of the book “Killed in a Coalpit – Lives of the Kingswood Colliers”. The book will be on sale at the talk. 

The book is a really useful source of reference for anyone whose family were employed in the South Gloucestershire and Bristol coalfields; the index has over 2000 family names.

More info about the book is at  and a review by the Bristol and Avon Family History Society is at
