    Would you happen to have any pictures of Louis Burbank born 1881 and worked in the colliery? He was my grandfather.

      We have numerous photographs of miners but not all are named. One of our members does have mining memorabilia and I will enquire of him if he has any information. I am assuming it is Whitwick Colliery where he worked.
