    Hi. Also researching my family tree and my grandmother lived at no 3 Double Row, Barrington. She was born in 1921 Elizabeth Walker. Her dad was William Walker and mum Mary Alice (nee Lake) William worked as a miner, not sure which pit though. She had a brother (Francis) Norman who also worked as a miner, seems all the males did in my family 😍 If anyone has any information I would love to hear it. My grandparents later lived on Deanery Street in Bedlington (she married William Atkinson in 1944)
  2. Hi. I'm researching my family tree and it's full of miners, I'm very proud to say, on both sides of my paternal family. I have come across my grandmother's side of Walker's and Lake's and a Joseph William Lake who lived at Foster's buildings in Choppington, in 1901. He, too was a miner (hewer) yet died aged 45 in 1909. I'm not sure if he was involved in a pit accident but it seems a young age for a man to go! Do you have any record of any accidents etc at that time? Not sure which pit either, maybe Barrington? Assuming those buildings were like pit rows so he'd likely work at the closest pit? Was there one in Choppington? Barrington? Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks Ingrid Atkinson
