Hi

I have just noticed your post. I believe we must be related. James Collins (1820-1870) who was killed in an accident at Trafalgar Colliery was my 2nd great grandfather. I believe he had a son, also called James (1853-1868) who was killed in an accident at Trafalgar Colliery. According to Coal Mining Accidents and Deaths index he concealed some gun powder and it exploded in his pocket, burning him so severely that he died the next day.
