Remembering September Mining Heroes

September 3, 2009 1 comment

If you are interested in the culture and history of coalmining why not visit the online Durham Mining Museum? That site is clearly a brilliant labour of love.

Courtesy of that site we know that down the years the following Ushaw Moor miners died as a result of a pit accident during the month of September: James Anderson, John Baxendale, Thomas Emmerson, John Thomas Hope, James Quinn and Wiliam Roe. 

The same again, in relation to New Brancepeth Colliery: Joseph Gibson, John Gray, James Greenwell, Alfred Skellet, John Telford and Fred Underwood.

If you know of miners that died in pit accidents that are not recorded on the Durham Mining Museum site, why not  inform the museum?
