Journal by grimshawcliff1943

during my research into the GRIMSHAW family,i came across two brothers who were killed in the disaster.
there names were JOHN & JOSEPH GRIMSHAW, who were born in CROFTON,WEST YORKS
after a number of years re-search i now have enough to put to-gether into a book on LUNDHILL. this will be published very soon.

i also wrote a poem about the disaster,which was published in the SOUTH YORKSHIRE TIMES.
