A Lamp from the Minnie Pit

Our pictures show a Miner's Lamp with the numbers 38 and 54 stamped on it which was used in the Minnie Pit. This lamp is lit for the annual remembrance service held at Halmer End Methodist Church each January.

The lamp, which is owned by Ken Whitefield, used to belong to someone who lived in the High Street in Halmer End. It is known that the lamp did not belong to any of the miners who died in the disaster. Unfortunately the numbers of the lamps that belonged to those miners who were not killed does not appear to have been recorded. It is therefore difficult to know which miner or miners this lamp may have belonged to.

If any of our readers can help us to identify the name of the miner or miners that owned this lamp please contact Ken Whitefield on 01782 660742. We thank you in anticipation of your help.
