Henry Abraham began work as a door boy down a coal mine near Pontypridd at the age of nine. He later became a collier (coal miner) and by studying later became weigher and clerk.

Henry was known to study until 3 o'clock in the morning, and his studious efforts led to his becoming the colliery manager at a coal mine in Ynyshir, and later the Lewis Merthyr Colliery in Trehafod.

Henry was related to William (Mabon) Abraham, the respected Rhondda trade unionist and member of parliament M.P.

The image above and the ones in the left hand column are kindly shared with us from the personal collection of Elizabeth Hopgood, the Great Great Grandaughter of Henry Abraham.
