Note:

The following account of the accident was given by James Reid at the inquest held at the Duke of Edinburgh Hotel, The Junction, before the District Coroner:

"I had been gone about five minutes when I heard the deceased shouting. I immediately ran to his assistance, and found him in his bord, lying on his face with a huge lump of coal lying across his body; he seemed to have been filling a skip at the time the coal fell; I spoke to the deceased, but got no answer; David Griffiths, who followed me into the deceased bord, helped me to extricate the deceased by removing the coal from off him; he was then very weak and unable to speak; we then removed him to the top of the pit, but he died whilst we were putting him into the skip to remove him ..."

The Newcastle Morning Herald of 17 March 1877 remarked that Robert Williamson "was about seventy-seven years of age, one of the A.A. Company's oldest servants ... many of the family are now occupying respectable positions in the city, and he has a large connection throughout the district."
