The Dark Lane Pit Disaster - Telford
« on: Saturday 23 July 16 19:45 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I was wondering whether anyone has the names of those who died in the Dark Lane Pit Disaster on the 29th December 1862 (9 men and 3 boys).

I have had a look on the net and I can not find anywhere that names them.

With thanks

Jill

Hi kd,

Thank you for your reply to my post.  Thomas Tonks was the name I was after, I suspected he died in the disaster but could not find his name anywhere.

Thanks you again.
