Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The National Coal Board (NCB) was set up under the Coal Nationalisation Act 1946. From 1 January 1947 it had sole responsibility for managing the British coal industry. It therefore inherited records of its predecessor companies, including the Amalgamated Anthracite Collieries Ltd. The collieries of the former county of West Glamorgan lay within the NCB's South Wales Area. The NCB became British Coal in 1986 and was dissolved in 1994.
Arranged into the following: accident report cards for Brynlliw Colliery; accident and compensation registers for specific collieries; general accident and compensation registers.
