THE search is on for design ideas for a memorial to mark the centenary of the Cadeby mining disaster.

Some 91 men from the South Yorkshire village, near Conisbrough, died during two underground explosions on July 9, 1912.

It was the ninth worst UK mining disaster of the 20th century.

Now a commemoration team is asking local people and schools to submit ideas for a new £5,000 memorial. It will be installed at Denaby Cemetery where many of the victims are buried.

Proposals and rough ideas should be emailed to jamesbeachill@hotmail.com by June 30.
