I am a journalist, working for ITV Calendar. I have read your website with great interest from my own personal interest - being from a mining family.
But also professionally - re Crigg I am very interested in talking to families of the men who died. I read Mary Swain's very moving message about her father dying and I wondered if you would ask her if she would be interested in talking to us about the event - along with the local historian and councillor.
Mary has all the original paperwork and while she can't remember her father, she can tell of the impact his death had on their family.
Also Michelle Kennedy - whose mum lost 3 brothers - and her mum would also be interesting to talk to.
My granddad worked at the pit all his life - Patrick Costello - and would have worked there at the time of the accident.
Would you contact Mary to ask if she would be interested?
