My g.g.grandfather Charles Baynham was awarded the Albert Medal 2nd.class,following the Tynewydd mining disaster in 1877.
I would love to leave evidence of that act to my grandchildren.
I understand you have some 5 such medals in your collection,any possibility that his my be amongst them?
Hoping to hear,
