On 20 August 1868 the Irish Mail express bound from London to Holyhead on the Isle of Anglesey, collided at Llanddulas on the North Wales coast, with a number of loose rolling stock wagons containing paraffin oil. In the conflagration that ensued 33 people lost their lives. The mass grave containing the remains of the victims and the memorial to the tragedy are located in the Church yard in Abergel, North Wales.
