I am trying to find information on Walter and Jane Sharples who were in Newcastle South Africa 1899. I know that Walter was working at the West Lennoxton Colliery when his wife died on the 6th of December 1899 of enteric fever, she is buried in the town's Cemetery. Walter returned to Darwen in June 1900. I wonder if anyone has information on West Lennoxton Colliery.
Many thanks
Tony

Hi Tony

See this website:
natalia.org.za/Files/18/Natalia%20v18%20...cle%20p41-58%20C.pdf

"For example, the unsuccessful Lennoxton Colliery Company which mined in the vicinity of Newcastle was controlled by a syndicate that included a farmer, a local doctor, a commission agent and a storekeeper, while the neighbouring West Lennoxton Collieries Ltd also went downhill when one of its guarantors, the Durban tailor W.H. Simons, became insolvent."

Many thanks for the information and image.
I wonder how I might find the date when Walter Sharples left Newcastle?
