Re: FYI-John Sneddon-New Monkland, Stanrigg
Have just found your posting. This John Sneddon was my grandfather. He left a wife, 3 sons and a daughter who was not yet born at the time of the disaster. We have been to visit the memorial. His body was never recovered. My cousin told me that on the morning of the disaster he had come home for his Bible.
Would be very interested to see acopy of the newspaper article you refer to.
