A MEMORIAL wall in tribute to the victims of the Gresford Disaster will be unveiled in Wrexham today (Thursday, September 22).

Each year, a memorial service is held for those who lost their lives in the disaster which occurred on September 22, 1934.

On that same date in 2022, Wrexham's Miner Rescue Station will be unveiling its wall.

Made up of red bricks, the wall contains the names, job titles and ages of the 266 miners who lost their lives on that fateful day.

Local artist Sylvia Massey has also been working on her own installation for the Gresford Mining Disaster exhibit - by placing 266 wooden discs, each one with a miners initials on, next to the wall.

The wall was officially complete on July 18 ahead of its unveiling which will take place at 2pm today (Thursday, September 22).

It has been placed at the main entrance to the station and following the annual memorial service in Gresford, guests will be invited to attend the unveiling of the wall at the station.

George Powell, who purchased the station from its previous owner around eight years ago, said: "Over the last few weeks, family members of miners who died in the disaster have been to have a preview of the wall."
