Milfraen Colliery, Blaenavon

An accident occurred here on March the 4th 1902, when the cage in which men were ascending the 250 yard deep shaft, touched into some ironwork tipping out five of the men, who fell to their deaths.

Among the dead were a father and his son, David and Edward Stollard; they only began working at this colliery that same morning.
