Blackvein Mining Disaster

Here lie the remains of 50 men 
and boys of the 142 

who died working the 
Blackvein Risca 
This 1st day 
December 1860

A sudden change at God's command and they fell.

They had no chance to bid their friends 

Swift came the last [?] without a warning

And bid them haste to god in heaven.
