Would you please explain the reason for stating that the Maypole Colliery Disaster Centenary Service, 17th August 2008,
would be in memory of those, ..... 'from East Mayo' ...... who died in the 1908 Maypole pit disaster ?
It is wrong to suggest that a service would be held to remember a select few, out of the seventy five who died in that accident. ALL the victims of the accident would be remembered, most of them being from the colliery locality, Abram, Lancashire.
You are right Jemmy, I have made a terrible mistake, I copied down a sentence then forgot to correct the wording, carelessness, I have no excuses. I did not mean to slight all the victims and their families.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I have now corrected it.
