Releasing a book based on the 1984 miners\' strike on Monday 4th November - the son and grandson of coal miners and coming from an area whose proud coal mining history and heritage is being slowly eroded from memory to be replaced by Macdonald\'s, Asda and Wetherspoons, it\'s good to see people are taking care to remember...

Thanks Dave for your steadfast work and very sound political judgement throughout the years for the miners\' cause. In particular, thanks for making it so clear that it was the striking miners themselves, not Arthur Scargill, who insisted and voted, rightly or wrongly, against holding a national strike ballot at the beginning of the 84-85 strike. I was totally behind this decision at the time, but as time went on I wondered if it was really the right decision. It\'s only now with the death of the witch and a recent conversation with an old militant in Yorkshire that I\'ve revisited this question, and it\'s gratifying to know that many true militants have concluded that it was probably a mistake. True, there were many scabs in Notts who would\'ve scabbed whatever, but remember that 1/3 of Notts miners came out at least for some part of the strike. Anyway, keep on keeping on mate, you\'re doing a grand job.

In solidarity, Mark

Thatcher\'s dead. I would like to go to a street party with my family, but haven\'t got the energy to organise one. The good folks at \"Is She Dead Yet?\" are listing street parties on Facebook and Twitter, but I don\'t use either of those. Can someone please put a list up on a website, ASAP! Celebrating this one filthy scumbag\'s death doesn\'t do much in itself, but it could at least bring some of us together who understand and revile what has happened in this country since 1984, and get us some good encounters and conversations - and also cheer us up a little bit.

I am managing a project in Pennine Lancashire which looks at the industrial heritage of the area and the production of raw materails. I would like to speak to anyone who might have connections with or worked at mines in Pennine Lancashire - I believe there were three in the Rossendale area.

I need some help re my proposed book. It is about a Labour woman MP from South Wales who fought and won the Wrekin seat in Shropshire in 1929 - mostly with the support of the miners\' vote there and with financial support etc from the Miners\' Union.
Any info or interest out there from miners\' historians etc would be appreciated. Thanks Sue Crampton

I worked for a company called NEI Control Systems, now defunct. My particular interest was in FLP and IS systems. We manufactured a system called a Cycloconvertor, a variable speed AC drive for man riding haulages and also a DC Variable speed system of my design for Conveyors. . We installed over 20 AC systems around the York, Derby , Notts coalfield and one was installed at Daw Mill. The DC systems were installed at Selby. I wish to put on record the pleasure and job satisfaction I had during the period when I worked underground several times a week for some years. The men I had the honour of meeting were wonderful people.

Mother born in Phillipstown, New Tredegar, now living in Australia

Do you have any comments?  

Can any one help me identify the cemetery where my Great Grandfather ( James Price) may have been buried in1919 following his being buried after some sort of accident presumably at Elliot's Colliery where he worked. He was taken to Tredegar Workhouse infirmary where he died. He lived at 102 Queens Road, Elliott Town, New Tredegar and his son-in-law's family lived up in Pritchard Terrace, Phillipstown. Apart from his death certificate, I have been unable to locate a death notice in a newspaper and so his burial remains unknown. I am hoping to locate the cemetery where he is buried ( in either Tredegar or New Tredegar ) as I wish to visit his burial plot when I visit Wales next year. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
