Hi

Thank you for your email. I have just noticed jchardy's reply to your post. The James Collins mentioned there is my 2nd great grandfather. He had a son also called James (1853-1868), who had 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.
Regarding the photograph, I am not sure how to send a photo via this forum. If you let me have your email address I will send it that way.
