Were you a  "BEVIN BOY".

On the 9th July the Secretary of the Bevin Boys Association Mr Ken Thomas paid a visit to the Cannock Chase Mining Historical Society headquarters. He came to offer his expertise for our book project, his knowledge of Bevin boys who worked in the Cannock Chase coal mines. Ken has a data base of Bevin boys from all over the world. The CCMHS gladly accepted his kind offer, Ken also asked if we would spread the word that he would like to hear from any former Bevin Boy whether resident in the UK or Abroad to add to his data base as the numbers get fewer ever year.

It is with great sadness that the CCMHS have to inform you of the passing of one of our authors. Graham Warburton passed away on Friday 21st January 2005 at 2.00pm in Stafford General Hospital after a short illness.

Graham will be sadly missed by the Cannock Chase Mining Historical Society.
