Looking for help, my dad, Philip King of, Mansfield was killed at Crown Farm 25 April 1976

Hi Alan

My name is Judith Ann King I am 42 and really could do with some help.

I am looking for some help my dad was Philip King of 28 Dale Street, Mansfield Nottinghamshire who was killed at Crown Farm on the 25th April 1976. I was 2 and half and my sister 6 months. We would love to know about our dad anything you can help us with.

We know how and when died but nothing of outcome of inquest or his date of birth what his job was and it is something that has bothered us along time. As you can appreciate we only have mum and it was horrible for her so does not want talk about.

If you can help me it would be amazing.

Thank you in advance
Judy ann

Bernard Palmer, A Death in Clipstone Mine, 1987

Memory-BPWith reference to a death in Clipstone mine I will confirm the very tragic loss of my uncle Bernard Palmer was on the 14th of February of that year.

it would be lovely to hear from anyone that would like to talk about him and I know the years of not having him around does hurt but we are lucky to have many memories of him.

Many thanks for remembering those that have lost their lives in this way.

Alans Data Base - Bernard Palmer, Clipstone Colliery

Alan
The entry for Bernard Palmer is incorrect regarding the date the accident happened about 8.30 Saturday evening and I think you will find the date was 14-02-1987 not 13th as shown on list.

I have first hand knowledge of this because Bernard was pit bottom onsetter and we worked as a pair.
My knowledge of this accident is permanent ---- because we swapped shifts for this weekend and I worked the Sunday.

A weekend I will never forget.


Bernard Palmer - Night shift onsetter, trapped by cage, spinal injuries and trapped head.

Fionn I spoke to Phillip regarding the accident. Bernard Palmer was an onsetter in the pit bottom, at the end of the Saturday evening shift the pit was cleared of workmen, Bernard got on the next cage by himself and rang the signal for last man out of the pit. It was acknowledged by the banksman and the engine driver. Unfortunately at the surface the engine driver overshot the getting off position slightly. Bernard opened the cage gate and decided that although the cage floor was not opposite the landing it would be safe enough to get out but when he was partly jumping down from the cage the engine driver, realising that the cage was not at the correct position, lowered the cage but unfortunately in doing so he trapped Bernard between the cage and the decking, fatally injuring him at that moment. The accident did happen at 8.30pm on Saturday evening of the 14th February 1987. Although he was an onsetter working underground in the pit bottom he was killed at surface pit top level.

Alans Data Base - Philip King - I was with Phil shortly before the accident
Hello,

I have just seen this page on your website as I was searching for the record of Phil King’s accident. I was with Phil shortly before the accident and vividly recall the events from my perspective. I was an apprentice electrician aged 19 and had been talking to Phil and his workmate Dave Strauther in the electrician’s workshop with my apprentice friend Glenn Manley before we were due to go underground at 12.00 midnight to start the Sunday night shift. Are my memories any use to this appeal?

Very best wishes,

Chris Bradley

Information On Website - 1914 Death, William Mott, At Bentinck

Hi

I am going through some papers of my father who was a miner at Bentinck Colliery for over 50 years starting in the early 1900's. One of the documents is a handwritten telegram on New Hucknall Colliery Company Limited headed paper dated May 19th 1914, regarding William Mott's death in 1914. I have scanned this and attached it to this message.

I hope this is of use to you as it shows the inquest took place at the old Hyson Green Police Station.

My father was William Frederick Clowes Born 2.10.1892 with several addresses in Selston including 12 Hollands Crescent, Annesley Lane End, Top Mexboro and Skegness House.

Regards

G. Clowes

Bradford Colliery - A Friend Of My Father, Emlyn Williams, Died There 1950s

Hi
My father who is now 90 told me about a man he knew in the 1950 s, called Emlyn Williams. He was a friend of my fathers who died in a mining accident at Bradford Colliery, Manchester during the mid 50 s. Would it be possible to send me any details about this person and the incident itself.

Also I believe there is a plaque dedicated to those who mined at this site, could you tell me where it is situated, is it near to Man City FC?

Regards

Rob Street

Regarding this Fionn...I think a good description and information for Rob Street about Bradford is on your site.....Bradford pit of death, 2,200 trapped underground by Bill Ramsdale.
It also shows the site of Man City stadium

So far as I know there isn't a memorial, but there is a site
