Mining Accidents - HOLBROOK William

Name: HOLBROOK William
Age: 15
Date: 11/08/1891
Year: 1891
Occupation: Bankrider
Colliery: Tillery, Pennybont
Owner: Powells Tillery Steam Coal Co Ltd
Town: Abertillery
County: Monmouth
Notes: Crushed while riding on a water barrel on an engine plane. He seems to have forgotten that there had been a door frame set in the road to allow of hauling through it. As the engine was only a steam winch, the tram must have been travelling slowly so that it is difficult to understand how he was trapped. He died on the 3rd October.
