Following the Wellington Pit Disaster at Whitehaven in 1910, Rescue Stations were established across the country, with the Lancashire and Cheshire station establishing their own medals for those who had taken part in mine rescue work. One man with the name 'J. Yates' received the Bolton and District Humane Society Medal for the Hulton Colliery Disaster, 21.12.1910.
