About 10 years ago I was contacted by a researcher Sue Cahill who spotted some familiar surnames in my research. Sue was researching the families of the Somerset coalfield particularly around Radstock and Midsomer Norton and I was researching the origins of my Lasbury family in Wiltshire and Somerset. There were several points where our research connected so we decided to join forces. We both continue with our own family searches but Sue sends her research for me to incorporate into the website.
This has now grown to a sizeable resource documenting 65,000+ individuals who lived and worked in the Somerset Coalfields. There are over 5,000 different surnames on record, 1000+ headstone images, 800+ photos plus certificates, documents, obituaries etc.
Additionally I would like to thank the following people for their help with my research.
