Coal Mining in Tranent, East Lothian - 1900-20

Posted: 3 May 2010 7:41PM GMT
Classification: Query
Male "BAIRD" Ancestors from Tranent were almost all coal miners, from very early on. I am trying to research coal mining practices, and the locations of the "pits" that were in operation in the early 1900's. I have records of the Fleet Pits, but none other. I would particularly like to be able to identify where John BAIRD (b.1885 in Trannent - d. 1916 in France) had worked as a miner before heading off to war in 1914.
