  • Notes 
    • Margaret Ross, when alive, had recollections that around the time of WW1 the miners rolled oranges, loaded with money, down the streets. There was a coalpit in the Hanningshaw area [between Rutherglen and Aitkenhead Road, Glasgow].

      Margaret worked either in Heggies Mill or Craigie Mill, Rutherglen or Glasgow.
