Who managed what mines? (General)

Would anyone have any information on where I can find a list of mine managers from the Forest of Dean? My x4 great grandfather (Albert Cooper) was a mine and colliery manager in 1926. He lived at Viney Hill, west Dean (lydney).

I have some information about a William Cooper (d1895), who I came across during some research a few years ago. He was manager of Standfast Pit in Parkend, and a shareholder in Parkend Colliery. Is he a relative of your Albert Cooper?
