Can you help regarding old residents of Ushaw Moor

I am trying to find information regarding two aspects of my family tree which impact upon Ushaw Moor and would appreciate any guidance – either about names , locations or even where you think i may be able to find more ?
1,McCardle family from 1900 onwards
The 1901 census record this family in 1901 in South View Ushaw Moor – though by 1911 they are recorded in Hepple St in New Brancepeth Colliery .
By 1911 Patrick is married to Margaret and they have 4 children : Rosie A ; Alice James and Joseph

I believe Alice went on to marry James McCaffery see next paragraph and died in 1924.
I would be interested in any memories or contact with descendants who can help me flesh things out
2.McCaffery
As mentioned above I belive James (Francis) Mccaffery spent some time mining at Ushaw Moor Colliery amongst other things .Through marriage to Alice McArdle I believe they had two children Gerard and Lawrence Leo and he remarried Jane Craggs in 1926 . I believe they spent some /all the time until 1950’s and James death at/near Ushaw Moor (7 Hall Avenue )

Both James and Jane I believe are buried in St Joseph’s Church but as I don’t live locally its difficult on check
In both situations i would appreciate any memories or contacts I could follow up by email to help me flesh some things out
