Methodists, Miners & the Minnie Pit
On 12 January 1918, 156 men and boys died in the Minnie Pit disaster at Halmer End. The Primitive Methodist Chapel became a mortuary. It took 18 months for all the men and boys to be recovered. Jill Barber looks at why so many Miners were Methodists, and the impact of their faith on life and death.
