It is with great sadness that we must announce that
former PDMHS Chairman and Hon. Recorder, and
long standing Society member, Dave Williams passed
away peacefully in the afternoon of Tuesday the 20th of
November in the Burton Closes Care Home in Bakewell.
Dave’s many contributions to the study of mining history
are immense, and he will be greatly missed.
We extend our sincerest condolences and heartfelt
sympathy to Dave’s family and his very many friends in
the mining history community, and beyond.
A full obituary will be published in the April Newsletter.
Mike Luff and Steve Thompson
