This is the church where we were married in 1977. Claire's parents were also
married here in 1954, as was Claire's sister Jane in 1980.

Joseph Titley died in the Hamstead Colliery disaster of 1908. When the fire broke
out there were 31 miners in the pit but only 6 escaped before the rest
were overcome by poisonous fumes.
