Sixbells colliery Abertillery was another pit with a terrible disaster where 48miners lost their lives my dad worked there at the time.
Don't know why people putting thumbs down to this when parents and grandparents died in the tragic Colliery disasters. I live in Wrexham, every family was affected by gresford and I'm sure it's the same for all. Sad, but if you talk to the fellas down there they miss it. #camaraderie #hardworkingmen&women #respect

Makes me proud to be welsh luv this song... Aberfan never forgotten always in our harts❤...
I'm told my grandfather was there trying to dig them out at Aberfan. I can't imagine what that must have been like. I can't even get through the intro to this without moistened eyes, just knowing that behind those numbers were lives, dreams, family... Lived in the Valleys all my life, driven past the cemetery at Aberfan and it always makes me shut up for a minute and just think. If there's a god listening, God rest them, and God rest their souls, indeed.
