The annual Clydach Valley Mining Memorial Service takes place at the Cambrian Memorial Park, Clydach Vale, at 12.30pm on Saturday, May 17.

It is also an opportunity to remember all those other people who have lost their lives in the coal-mining industry.

The Clydach Valley Mining Memorial Service will take place in the heart of the picturesque Clydach Vale Country Park.

Led by Father Philip Leyshon, a Minute’s Silence will be observed, followed by the tolling of the bells of St Thomas Church. A roll call of the 1941 and 1965 disaster victims will be read out by a survivor of the 1965 explosion, followed by the laying of wreaths.

Among the special guests will be Rhondda Cynon Taf Mayor, Cllr Ann Crimmings, along with retired coal miners 100-year-old Trevor Ward, 90-year-old Hugh Baker and 84-year-old Tommy Higgs.

A roll call of the miners that lost their lives in 1941 and 1965 will be read out by Myrddin Pritchard, a survivor of the 1965 colliery explosion.

Soprano Lucy Rees will sing ‘My Little Welsh Home’ followed by performances by Cambrian Male Choir and Cwm Clydach School Choir.

The Service of Remembrance is organised by Cwm Clydach Community Development Trust, supported by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council.
