Crump Meadow Pit (General)

My father, Arthur Dent from Cinderford, left school on his thirteenth birthday in October 1917 and was apprenticed at Crump Meadow pit, I believe in engineering, perhaps electrical. He subsequently left the mining industry and trained as a Methodist Minister. Can anyone point me towards information of what this apprenticeship may have involved. I now live in East Kent where coal mining operated between 1925 and 1989 and visiting local sites have wondered what my father's work may have been. Christopher Dent
