Names of Individual Fatalities in Blantyre Pits / Coalmines, not including the 212 who lost their lives due to the 1877 Pit Disaster.

It has been said many times that the price of coal was never worth the loss of lives. Over and above the 212 men and boys who were killed in the 1877 Dixon’s Pit Disaster, there were at least another 207 who lost their lives in Blantyre Pits, including a 16 year old girl whose dress was caught in a revolving shaft.
