Born in Barnsley, Collindridge became a coal miner, and became active in the Miners' Federation of Great Britain (MFGB) and the Labour Party. He served on Wombwell Urban District Council from 1920 until 1939, including a stint as chair in 1931/32. In 1937, he served on an MFGB delegation to the Soviet Union, and in 1944 on one to Australia and New Zealand.
Collindridge was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Barnsley at a by-election in 1938, and represented the constituency until he died during the campaign for the 1951 general election in Barnsley aged 60.
