Hello from America. My grandfather - whom I never met - was Roland (Duke) Langrick.
Do not know if there is anyone around that would remember him but if there is I would love to hear from them.
Also my grandfather - Roland Duke Langricks’ father was Lloyd Langrick and he, I am told, was one of the managers of the mine in Warsop Main

A verdict of “Accidental death” was returned at the inquest in Mansfield yesterday on Roland Langrick thirty, a colliery corporal, who died in Mansfield Hospital on Sunday as a result of injuries he received in Ollerton Colliery on Friday. Langrick was engaged in coupling empty tubs, at a junction when a full tub became uncoupled and ran into him. He was severely injured about the head and body. Patrick Murphy, 15, Burns Avenue, Mansfield Woodhouse, a deputy, said that about a quarter to one in the morning he noticed the endless rope had stopped. He went to investigate and at a junction found Langrick lying across the road where the empties ran, with his feet towards a full tub which was off the rails, having become uncoupled. The spring point had thrown the tub of the rails, as it ran away, by the tub continued off the rails and struck him. Wilfred Seeds, 183, Walesby Lane, New Ollerton, a clipper, said that Langrick was walking towards him when he (Seeds) saw the tub coming down the gradient. He shouted a warning but Langrick was caught.
