Thomas WHITTLE miner, Cinderford buying a house? (General)

by macast @, North Yorkshire, England, Monday, July 18, 2022, 10:20 (736 days ago)

I'm wondering how many miners were able to afford to buy their own house around 1881-1891?

Mike has miners on both sides of his family who have bought property, but these have been small terraced houses. would a Banksman like Thomas WHITTLE be able to buy a semi-detached stone built house on Belle Vue Road, Cinderford?

we don't know what pit he worked at and we are trying to work out how he got enough money to buy such a house.

thanks in advance for any help given

British Newspapers on line. Gloucester Journal Saturday 4 May 1935 have a clear photograph of Mrs E H Whittle widow of Mr Thomas Whittle and mother of Mr W G Whiitle of Cinderford who has died at her home 40 Belle Vue-Road Cinderford at the age of 70.

Also there is a write-up on her funeral with those present etc.
