Despite extensive research, and help from the wardens at Gwennap church, it has not been possible to locate a headstone for Frederick Tucker, so it would seem that his family was not sufficiently well-off to afford one. Instead, we would suggest that we can place a token of remembrance at the lych gate in the churchyard here, marked with Frederick's name.
Miner at East Pool Mine, Redruth
Miner, aged 20, who died from a fall at East Pool Mine - 9th May 1907
Frederick Tucker was less than a week away from his twenty-first birthday when he died as a result of a fall in East Pool Mine, on 9th May 1907. His death came less than 36 hours after that of another young miner – Thomas Plint – illustrating how dangerous underground working could be.
