Hi, I’m looking for some information regarding the death of my gt grandfather at Kilnhurst colliery please?
Hi I note from your website you have both Kilnhurst and Swinton sectors but wonder if you could send me an email address where I could send some information and detail of our Fair in October.
Kind regards Dave Valentine Vice Chair Doncaster and District Family History Soc.
Anyone remember an old mate of mine – Johnny Dale – lived on Queen Street Swinton would be iaround 85 now,, attended Mexborough GS in the 40’s, was a member of Rockingham Cycling Club and I think did National Service in RAF. I was also from Swinton and member of Rockingham CC along with Pete Cutts, Ron Gilby, Bernard Hurrell et al…..
I am researching & writing a novel about the life of my great-grandmother Isabella whose married name was Tamplin when she lived in Swinton 1874-6. Tragically, all 3 of her children died in Swinton during a scarlatina epidemic in 1875. Her husband Joe was a railway shunter based at Mexborough. I want to find maps and local histories for Swinton & area – can anyone tell me the best local studies or archives to visit for these please? Thanks, Celia Renshaw in Sheffield
