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;

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.

 'Australasian (Melbourne, Vic: 1864-1946), Saturday 24 March 1900, page 41.'
