Explosion at 'A' Pit , May 6th 1852

I found this interesting newspaper article about an explosion in Hebburn 'A' Pit 1852. 'A' Pit was the one at Hebburn Colliery. The other pits in Hebburn were 'B' Pit just yards south of St Oswalds Church and 'C' Pit between Lyon St & Hawthorn Leslies.
Here are the names of those who died from the Durham Miners website.Notice one worker was just 10 years old.
