Gresford is a village in Wrexham County, North East Wales, situated between the town of Wrexham to the south and the English city of Chester to the north. Gresford has a rich heritage which was dominated by the coal mining industry during the late 19th and early 20th Century.
It could be argued that the village is most well known for its association with the coal mining industry, and particularly the Gresford Mine Disaster of 1934 in which 266 men died. The bodies of the miners were never recovered and the head gear wheel is preserved as part of the Gresford Disaster Memorial. ....
