A co-operative society started by miners at Cinderford bridge in 1874 came to dominate the town's retail trade. The society's penny bank for children had 700 subscribers in 1897 and its anniversary celebration was a major event in the town's calendar until after the First World War. The society, which also opened shops elsewhere in the Forest and in neighbouring towns and villages, took over several other societies and had c. 9,000 members in 1965. It was later incorporated in the Gloucester & Severnside co-operative society, which had several shops in Cinderford in 1993. maybe 4 ?
