    I hope you can help. I am looking for information on both the National Miners Association which was around in the 1870s and the Power Group of the NUM. I am basically looking for the formation dates, what organisations they grew out of and what happened to the NMA.
    Ths is for a book I have written called Behind the Badge which gives brief histories of trade unions that produced badges. The first volume which cover 600 unions with 200 badges is already published. I am now working on the second volume. Any help would be appreciated.

    Robin Page Arnot’s first book on the history of the Miners Federation of Great Britain (MFGB) Vol. 1 (1889 – 1910) has quite a bit of information on the Miners National Union (MNU) and its opposite number at the time, the Amalgamated Association of Miners (AAM).

    I’ve not got a lot of information on the Power Group, some of the early NUM rule books give lists of the original craft unions etc which amalgamated to form the Power Group.

About this Sponsor

The MuBu Coalmining Project took place from April 2010 to the end of March 2012.  The remit was two-fold - firstly to see how the once vast coalmining industry in the East Midlands was represented in the Heritage sector and secondly to bring aspects of social media to that representation. The Coal mining project was funded by Renaissance East Midlands (REM) and the Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) at the University of Nottingham. The Bursary holder was Dr. David Amos who completed a PhD on the 1984-85 Miners Strike in the Nottinghamshire Coalfield. David is an ex miner, having worked in the deep mining coal industry at Annesley Colliery for 24 years.
