    Gresford Colliery Disaster - Explosion and Escape - WCBC

    The Gresford disaster occurred on 22 September 1934 at Gresford Colliery, Gresford, near Wrexham, in northeast Wales, when an explosion killed 266 men and boys.

    The disaster led to the nationalisation of the UK coal industry.

    There will be services of remembrance all over Wrexham today. Barely a family was untouched by the disaster.
