My great grandfather, James Collins (1821-70) was killed in the Trafalgar Colliery on 2 June 1870. The inquest, which was held a few days later at the Crown Inn in Lydbrook, concluded that he was “crushed by the buffer of a coal tram which accidentally ran back on an incline plane in the Trafalgar Colliery and knocked the deceased down.”
