Types of Disasters

Disasters at Sea

Mining Disasters

Wales Mining Disasters are managed by Project: Disasters – Wales Mining Disasters Team. This will lead to the individual County pages, such as Monmouthshire Mining Disasters. Creating a new Wales mining disaster page should be coordinated with that team and linked to this page.

List of Wales Mining Disasters This list is part of Project: Disasters. If a Disaster has a page, it will be listed below. Each will link to a Category for that Disaster, where the Profiles will be listed for those individuals we can identify.

New space page in progress Universal Colliery Disaster 1913. I put Fran's name on it because I'm not in the Disaster's team. Feel free to change.

The link has been added here. Fran should pickup on this to process on her side.

Thanks Jutta,

I've created a page for Abertysswg Mining Disaster 1902 - Abertysswg Mine Disaster. I've never created a space page before so would appreciate someone checking it out for possible errors
NICE WORK! I have added it to the Monmouthshire Mining Disasters page. There are also resource links on the bottom of our main Wales Mining Disasters Team page, including a blank table you can copy and paste.

This is all still a work in progress, but if you need any help with anything, let me know. Otherwise, I think you did a wonderful job on your first free space page :)

Also, if you need to do the links at the top, feel free to copy them from the Universal Colliery page;)

Yes, I am doing it now, thanks for the reminder
Great job! I’ve added links for your rail disasters pages to the Transportation page today. It’s looking better already :-)


I added the Abergele Rail Disaster. Hope that's ok?
