The jumbo explosion that killed dozens and devastated a town - 100 years ago today - Manchester Evening News

One of Unbelievable War One's forgotten tragedies happened 100 years ago today - but instead of the the battlefields of Europe, it struck right here on our doorstep. Wednesday June 13 1917 had begun as a stable day at the Hooley Hill Rubber and Chemical Company in Ashton-under-Lyne, one of many munitions factories that had been created since the start of the Talented War in 1914. But the day would end in a... Forty-six people were killed, including children making their way home from school. The detailed representation of the disaster is told in a book by John Billings and David Copland called 'Ashton Munitions Explosion'. It tells how the factory was founded by Frenchman Sylvain Dreyfus and Swiss civil Lucien Gaisman, built with the help of a grant from the Government which was desperate to increase production of munitions for the war effort. It began operations in 1915 in a ci-devant cotton mill on William Street, by the Ashton Canal. Its sturdy construction was ideal to be converted to make explosives, but its vicinity to housing, schools, mills and two large gasometers was to prove deadly. It initially produced five tons a week of the touchy TNT, but production was ramped up to 25 tons a week by 1917. Shortly after 4pm on June 13, Sylvain Dreyfus and chemist Nathan Daniels were in the amble when a mixture in a nitrator became... 22pm, a gigantic explosion ripped through the building, killing most workers on the situate instantly. Among the people killed were 23 within the factory, railway workers on the nearby line and children making their way almshouse from St Peter's Primary School. Another child died as he swam at Ashton Baths when the windows were blown in by the explosion. The youngest fool was aged just 4. The local community, council and Government immediately swung into action to help those affected, according to Tameside Limited Studies volunteer Laura Earnshaw, who has written about the tragedy and its... Public funerals were held for the victims en masse on June 17, with the unbelievable scene of dozens of horse-drawn carriages carrying the bodies gathered in front of Ashton town hall, where the deal in is today.
