Ferndale No.1 1867

Postby john43 » Sat Oct 07, 2017 6:41 pm

Looking for any information on my great-great grandfather Nathaniel Roach who was one of the victims of the 1867 explosion.
I've managed to trace him from birth in Pembrokeshire in 1832, his marriage to Mary Evans in Carmarthen who was the mother of my great grandfather John, born in 1855.
Nathaniel was in Bate House , Aberdare in 1851 as a servant to Susannah Williams , a shopkeeper but I lose trace of him after that until the disaster in 1867.
I know his father Thomas was also a miner in Aberdare in 1861 then appears as a lamp inspector living in Double Row, Llanwonno in the 1871 census.
Also is there a memorial to the men and boys who died.
Many thanks.
