    I am the grandson of John Brownridge who was killed in the Grove Colliery disaster. The Chronical newspaper dated July 22 2010 gives details of a memorial event to mark the 80th anniversary of the disaster. Anyone interested can phone councillor Alan Paul on 01543 378040 or 07837919972.

  2. Mr. Brownridge

    I noted your comments as to the memorial event of the disaster. Did you attend? Was it classed as a success? Could you tell me alittle more about the day, please? It would be helpful for a local Hiostory Society project that I am participating in.

    Many thanks
