TROVE Tuesday; Colliery Disaster
Last Thursday, 30 June, I was at Rookwood Cemetery, hunting ancestors graves, as one does. Trying to find a marker, I came across this;
'Australasian (Melbourne, Vic: 1864-1946), Saturday 24 March 1900, page 41.'
The grave is large and very over grown.
Back home and I knew I had to find out what happened, so I searched TROVE and the article, below is very detailed. Amazingly one man survived the accident.
