Hi I am not a miner but I have been researing a mine in South Wales that my grandfather mined - Bonvilles Court in Saundersfoot. there's a photograph on the site which may include him. How do I go about getting a copy as i'm sure my mother will be able to identify him? Thank you
Kind regards

The Saundersfoot Railway, Oakwood Press, ISBN 0 85361 382 6.

Industrial Saundersfoot, Gomer press, ISBN 0 85088 866 2.

Pembrokeshire, The Forgotten Coalfield, Landmark Collector's Library.ISBN 1 84306 127 9.

Hope this helps!

Suggest you get your mother to check the image on here, (PC/laptop etc) to confirm your speculation? IP: 86.132.4.48
