The Gresford Mining Disaster North Wales September 22, 1934

   The Gresford disaster occurred on September 22, 1934, at Gresford Colliery, Gresford, near Wrexham, in North East Wales, when an explosion killed 266 men and boys. Its cause was never proved but an inquiry found that failures in safety procedures and poor mine management were contributory factors. Gresford is one of Britain's worst coal mining disasters. Only eleven bodies were recovered, the rest were left entombed in the colliery's permanently sealed damaged districts.

The good people of Brighouse also did their bit help the families.   

A day to remember 70 years ago at Clifton

Here is a photograph taken in 1948 on the occasion of the Clifton Methodist Church Sunday School anniversary. A happy day for all concerned on this special day.
