Lumpsey Pit Officials (1910)

The Mine Manager and various officials of Lumpsey Pit.

Standing: ??, William Stephens, ??, ??, Mr Ralph Clough Jnr (son of Mr Clough Lumpsey Mine Engineer – 1911 Census lists Ralph as an Enginewright).

Seated: Mr. Robert Clough (Engineer), Mr. Dixon (Manager), ??.

Simon Chapman advises us: ” Mr Stephens is the chap standing at the left with the light-coloured cap and the well-starched collar. The chap standing at the right with the bowler hat and the bushy moustache I think was Mr Clough, son of the engineer sitting front left.”

Rod Umpleby tells us: ”William Stephens who was shown previously in the photograph 1906 of the closure of Huntcliffe Mine. He was described as later cashier at Lumsey Mine. He was my great-great uncle and the 1911 census gave his occupation as mines treasurer.”
