Tipton Ammun. Explosion names 1922

Postby mjay » Mon Mar 08, 2021 4:31 pm

[list=][/list]The following girls are remembered on memorial.
I hadn't found anything on these girls,
I've gone through research and booklet The Great Dudley Port Explosion by Chris Smith & online accounts of the inquiry.

Florence Bryant of 15 west St Dudley Port
(Looks like she was Gladys Bryant mother and in the booklet it explains she was injured in the explosion as she was visiting the factory to query daughters wages)
Don't know when she was added to memorial as it looks like she was still living in 1939
viewtopic.php?f=31&t=20789&p=203330&hilit=Gladys+bryant#p203330
and i think this her DOD

Florence Masters 15 New Cross St Tipton

Mary Luker 9 Charlotte St Dudley

Nellie Warmer 50 Union St Tipton

Gladys Williams 14
(wonder if any relation to Elizabeth Williams who was killed)
From the booklet it mentions her father James Williams, he helped the girls into vehicles to go to Dudley Guest hospital


A witness, Sam Morgan, of 18 court, number 4 house, Dudley Port, who was coal picking nearby at the time, said, that when he heard the explosion he fell to the ground, as he had been taught during the war, and after getting up, he saw the sky filled with smoke and heard hysterical screams.
