I am very pleased to see the names of the deceased, I have been looking for confirmation of a story that relatives were lost in that disaster. Their names are on the list and although I never met them it is very sad. They were Gwyneth Collins and her boys.
Just sat at home and watched the bbc1 Documentary and i am crying like a baby I love my home town now as a dad i cant think what these dad's and mum's went though If i can help in ANYway please email me
HI Adrian , You probably don't remember me -Laurence James. Iwas in Quakers Yard then moved to Afon Taf. It all seems a very long time ago. I remember we all walked from QYGS to Aberfan on that fateful morning. Imoved from Merthyr in 1972 to London then in 1984 moved to the Algarve to teach. Came back to Head a school in Malvern 1995 and now have my own school in Cheltenham.
I remember sitting in a car on the waste land next to Thomas's fish shop when the news began to come through of the tip engulfing Pantglas School; it's giving me shivers as I write. My brother was in the Civil Defence at the time (why did we disband that,but I digress)I don't think he slept much that week.
