RECORDS OF THE SOUTH YORKSHIRE MINERS' WELFARE FUND
Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The South Yorkshire Miners' Welfare Fund was a social organisation which built recreation and other facilities for miners. The funds for doing so were partly contributed by coal mining companies on the basis of the tonnage of coal each produced. The location books contain statistical information on the numbers of miners and place of residence of miners employed at each of the South Yorkshire coalfields, and as such are a source of information on the population distribution of mine employees in the 1920s and 1930s.
