Just a moments reflection today (as we had an excellent talk on this at Senior Blues).

The Gresford Colliery Disaster was on this day, Saturday, 22nd September, 1934.

266 victims, only 11 bodies recovered, the rest remain entombed to this day.

RIP

Thank you 3mm I’m glad somebody has remembered them, a terrible tragedy which still resonates today.
