Deaths in North Staffordshire Coalfield From 1693 to 2009

Compiled by John Lumsdon (apologies for any errors or omissions)

In perfect health they left their homes,
not knowing that their time had come.
A sudden change upon them fell,
no time to bid their friends farewell.
(from a memorial card at one of the explosions)
