The Lloyds Of 54 Wade Row, High Moorsley,Hetton Le Hole - a Memory of Houghton-Le-Spring.

Im currently researching my family heritage. My father and grandfather were both born in Hetton Le Spring.Would anyone remember Robert and Hilda Lloyd and their children Robert (my father), Joseph, Hilda, John and Lawrence. My grandfather was employed as a "Hewer" at a local coal mine in the area, I just don't know if there was one or many back the, or where it was located.

I would love to hear from anyone with knowledge of them or even just knowledge of Hetton Le Spring/Hetton Le Hole now or back then. I'm keen to drink in my heritage of the area and people.

Thank you
