Memorial to Aberfan Disaster
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Al 9:15 hours of the Friday October 21th, 1966 a waste tip slid down the mountainside toward the village of Aberfan (South Wales) destroying a farm in its path and killing the occupants.

Children at Pantglas Junior School had just returned from singing hymns at their morning assembly.

But the slide engulfed the building, killing 116 children and five of their teachers.

The slurry also engulfed 20 houses before coming to a halt.

Tears are not enough to describe the sorrow I feel for you. Sleep well, beautiful beloved children. You are forever safe in God's loving arms.
