Steven Davies says: December 13, 2014 at 11:37 am My great grandfather was George Henry Harvey Eddy of Bosorne Road who died in the Lavant tragedy. After the accident my grandmother who was 10 moved to South Wales so as her elder brother Lewis could find work in the coal mines

Amber Harper says: August 7, 2015 at 7:14 pm Hi Steve My mums grandad (John Eddy) was one of the 7 children, he also moved to South Wales with his brothers & sisters after the accident. Do you know the names of his siblings? Just looking up a family tree Thanks Amber
