Both my grandparents worked at this mine, along with other relatives. Does anyone know if there is website that lists employees of the mine? I found a website that explains the history of the mine, although no employee particulars.

Mosley Common Mine was located in the Lancashire county and employed over 2,000 by 1919, and became part of the Manchester Collieries in 1929, before being taken over by the National Coal Board in 1947. By the late 1950s, the colliery employed 3,000, and was among the largest and most modern pits in the country.
My family lived in the lancashire area and many worked in the pits
Interested Surnames are
I am trying to trace which male family members actually worked in the pits, whereas the women worked in the mills. Do you know if there is a register which outlines who worked at the pits.
