If your interested in the Neston Miners, there is an excellent article about the Neston Coal mines in local author "Greg Dawson"'s book "Wyrale" goes into great detail about the local families involved.

There's quite a lot about this on the internet. It's also been covered before on Wiki under various subject titles. Here are a few links for you:
