The HCSW project team have been contacted by Gary Jones asking for information about his grandfather I’m looking for any information on my grandfather,
Christopher Jones who worked at the iron works approx 1930’s to retirement in late 60/70’s. I believe he worked at one time on the locomotives then eventually as a blast furnace operative.
Also believed to have had a serious injury at the works resulting in him losing a leg.
Just wondered if there are any official records of staff during that period
We have advised him of the National Archives, Durham Record Office and also the British Steel Archive
If you can provide any information, pictures please comment or email – thanks in advance
