    Edward Medal London Gazette 28.2.1916.

    A fall of roof occured at the Ireland Colliery, Staveley, Derbyshire, by which a filler named John William Fieldsend was imprisoned. Gergory, Franklin, Hudson, Nurse and Smith at once set to work to open a passage through the fallen roof in order to rescue their fellow workman. The roof was everywhere was very uneasy and a futher fall was liable to occur at any moment. Owing to the narrowness of the place, only one man could work at the head of the passage (the most dangerous place), while the remaining four, one behind the other, passed out the material removed, the men taking by turns the post of danger. After about 3 hours' work, at 10am a further fall occured, closing the passage which had been made for 3 yards. Fortunately the workers escaped without injury. Work was at once resumed, and Fieldsend was reached. As soon, however, as an attempt was made to remove him from under a piece of timber, by which he was pinned down, a third fall occured, blocking up the passage for about 4 yards, and displacing much of the timber which had been used to prop up the roof and walls of the passage as it was made. Finally, at 5pm., afer 10 hours' continuous work, Fieldsend was reached and taken out of the pit. He was not injured. All five men ran continuous risk during the whole 10 hours, of serious injury or death from falls of roof.
