Description

Edited by T.E.Forster, HB, 133pp, Andrew Reid & Company Ltd (1912)

There have been many colliery disasters for centuries. However, of all of the catastrophes that have occured, probably none has attracted such universal attention and sympathy as that which took place at Hartley Colliery 16th Jan 1862. The members of the General Committee of the Relief Fund felt, on the occassion of the closing of the fund and the termination of their labours, that some permanent record of the accident and of the fund should be undertaken. An effort has been made to tell the story of the accident in the words of those who were either present or who shared in their fears and anxieties at the moment.
