Actually, we have a resident expert on the forum - littlemissy - who I hope will be able to answer this question.
If you haven't had a reply after a couple of days, repost your question as a 'reply' in this thread, and I will answer it as best I can.

Personally, I would start with the BBC Bitesize summary.

Hi, was it specifically just the public health acts you were wondering about? No other factors? 1830s - 1930s is by far the most popular time period so there is quite a lot of revision material on the erg from schools. Let us know if you have any more questions.

It was just the public health acts. For the coal mining topic, I was wondering how much depth I need to know the General Strike in- Many thanks!!

You need to know about the General Strike in terms of changes in working and employment conditions. Just before WW1 miners had been fighting for better wages and conditions and ther had been strikes. During WW1 the Government took charge of the mines and there was a minimum wage. In 1926 mine owners wanted to lower wages and increase hours due to a decrease in profits. The TUC called a General Strike in support of the miners. The strike lasted a long time and ultimately was a failure for the miners and they had to accept lower wages and longer hours, and many were unemployed. In the Depression of the 1930s many more lost their jobs.

That's really about as much as you need to know. Don't worry about timelines of the strike etc

Hi again - I have a question about parliamentary reform. I have been looking at revision materiel on-line about the Third Reform Act of 1884 and the info conflicts - I was just wondering if anyone could tell me who got the vote as a result of the act and any conditions they had to meet (did they have to be property owners or was their a minimum value of house) Many thanks!!!

The 1830s-1930s syllabus specifies:
  • extension of the franchise, 1867-1928
  • the movement for Women’s Suffrage, 1890s- 1928
  • the Suffragette Movement, 1903-1914
So in terms of Acts you will need to learn:
  • the 1867 Reform Act,
  • the 1982 Ballot Act,
  • the 1918 Representation of the People Act, and
  • the 1928 Act.
