The Development of Conisbro’

Yesterday, at Conisbro’, the preliminary arrangements were being made prior to the erection of 500 cottages tor the Denaby Main Colliery Company.

The land on which they will be built is about midway between Denaby and Conisbro’ parish, and in the neighbourhood of Messrs. Kilner Bros.’ Glass Works.

Great interest is being taken in all the movements in connection with the proposed new colliery, and it is evident the population of the neighbourhood will eventually develop very rapidly.

One matter, which is a cause for some concern, is the crowded state of the burial ground, and it is declared to be imperative that action should speedily be taken to secure fresh ground, seeing that nobody can be interred without mortal remains being interfered with.
