Sheffield Independent 12th May 1938

Mrs. Carter, widow of Alfred Carter, 50, of  7, North Crescent, Duckmanton, spent a terrible period of suspense in her home, not daring to go down to the pit.

“We thought he was injured and in hospital,” she said, “and we could not get either denial or confirmation until his brother Albert, who works the pit, broke the news to us us late in the afternoon”

She is left with a boy and girl. The former is an apprentice electrician at the colliery.

More information coming soon.
