Renaming?[edit]

See Category talk:Mining disasters for a discussion on whether to rename this and similar articles to remove the capitalisation. Ziggurat 21:37, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Death toll[edit]

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. — BillC talk 09:00, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

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?--86.31.85.169 (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)

Fines[edit]

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)
