Grimethorpe Colliery deputies 


This photograph shows a number of deputies from Grimethorpe colliery who in the1920s general strike  went to Hull docks and paid for a quantity of fish, this was brought back to the pit and distributed free to the striking miners. This photograph was taken of the people involved. George Graham is the one at the front. He  was married to Mary Howe. George was the organist at Grimethorpe Methodist Chapel and won several prizes for organ recitals.  He was a coal face worker but then became a pit deputy prior to the General Strike and remained so until he retired circa 1949 aged 65.
