Worked with your uncle, above the screens, he worked the tipplers, I removed the colliers’ tallies from the emptied tubs. 1949/1950.

Miners like Albert gave a lifetime of hard work to the Mines and yet their hometown seems always to want to shove them into the background. It's shameful that there is no Monument to their efforts in the centre of Wigan.

DTease there is a monument being made at this moment There is an organisation raising funds. There is plenty of information on the web site. This is the link to their web site.
