    Histories
    Senghenydd Mining Disaster 1913
    Senghenydd Mining Disaster 1913

  • Notes 
    • Working in Senghennydd Pit at time of disaster and was rescued but laid out at pit head and thought to be dead. Found to be alive. His father was returning home from holiday when he heard of the disaster and travelled to Wales immediately.

      Subsequently moved to Rossington, Doncaster
    • (Research):There was only one who survived the explosion, W.H. Lasbury, an assistant
      timberman. He went down the York shaft on the morning of the explosion at about 7.50a.m. and went to the West York by the return.

      He then went about 20 to 30 yards below the engine on the York West incline when he heard a dull report. He was enveloped in a cloud of dust, which travelled from behind him and he lost his light. He fell forwards and he called to the engineman asking if he was all right to which he replied that he was. He turned back to the pit and groped his way out.

      As he neared the cross cut he heard a sound as of air rushing through the doors in
      its ordinary way. As he drew near the doors crashed open and he heard a splintering sound and he staggered back just on the inbye side of the doors, collected himself and staggered to the bottom of the York shaft where he dropped.

      This gave an idication that there had been two explosions.
