Ince Hall Colliery and Rose Bridge Colliery
I am interested in the above collieries for the period following the terrible fire damp explosions in the 1850's.
Say from 1860 -1930. I would like to know who owned the mines and who managed them, also what accidents occured during that period. I live near Southampton so its difficult for me to go to local sources
Perhaps "Art" or another member can point me in the right direction in how to find this imformation
Thanking You Peter

Thanks Tonker & Gaffer, very interesting.
I am also looking for information on the 2 mines from the 1860's until the mines closed I think in the late 1920's

Peter be aware of any photos claiming to be of Rosebridge, they are often taken at Douglas Bank Colliery.There are a few though that do seem to be at Rosebridge. The Caroline pit, or deep pit at Rosebridge, was the deepest in the country when first sunk.I have posted a pic of the colliery somewhere on here. It is a bit blurred but I'll find the reference and put it up.

Peter, go onto photos of Wigan, then Album, then people. Scroll down to Morris Family and you will find a pic of a man named Stan Morris with a little dog. Rosebridge is in the background.
