Thread Name: Lyr Add: Pontypridd Collier in search of his wife
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Pontypridd Collier in search of his wife
My grandmother was born in Pontypridd, lived in Abertridwr and her father worked in the Senghenydd mine. I think the story goes that he and his brother were not working a shift at the time of the Senghenydd mining disaster so they survived and my (English) great grandfather moved the family to Somerset after that catastrophic event when my grandmother was young.
