You don’t mention if you have explored the British Newspaper Archive in relation to this colliery. If not there are several hundred references which might be of interest. They range from records of donations to the Gloucester Royal Infirmary, accounts of the 1949 flood, reports of accidents and, amongst those, of at least 16 named fatalities. If you would like any further details of anything specific I can probably provide them.
