I have removed the complete list of 439 names. Although the event is tragic, Wikipedia is not a memorial, and there is good precedent that verbatim lists like this are best linked to on external sites. — BillCtalk 09:00, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
how many people died in this awful disaster? 439 people died and one rescuer died, named William John. so that makes it 40 people sadly died. how sad?--22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:59, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
This comment was (presumably mistakenly) posted on the article page. Gareth (talk) 16:05, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm guessing that the mistaken comment also has a typo 439 dead plus 1 rescuer would be 440 dead (not per the presumed typo 40 dead) - and I'm guessing that's what the comment intended to convey. EdwardLane (talk) 09:04, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
The welshcoalmines reference says that the total fines were £24, not £24 to the manager and £10 to the owner, as stated here. Presumably Lewis's £10 came out of the £24. Bdellovibrio (talk) 14:09, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
