My Great grandfather lived in Jubilee Road about 1900 and was a Tailors Journeyman my Grandfather was also from Weston and after WW1 trained as a gas fitter at what is now Weston Museum. I am looking for anyone that has any records of employees of the former gas works in Weston?

My first port of call, if you have not already done so, would be the Somerset Heritage Centre searching for "Weston-super-Mare Gas".  However, at first glance I can't see any employee records.  I would contact them with your query.  Tel: 01823 278805 Email: somersetarchives@swheritage.org.uk  In more normal times when the North Somerset Archivist is able to visit Weston Library they can bring documents to Weston if you can not get to Taunton.

The National Archives catalogue has a collection of records including some of the Somerset Archives ones.

I noticed that some early records had been removed from the Somerset Archives to the National Gas Archive  It might be worth contacting them to see if they can help.  email:  archive@nationalgrid.com 

Let us know how you get on.
