Arbeit Macht Frei

“On the 6th of March 1865, a very melancholy accident befell a lad named John Foden, about 13 years of age. While engaged sweeping under a Mule his head was caught between the Roller Bean and the carriage as the latter was putting up – and completely smashed, death being instantaneous” – Quarry Bank Mill Memoranda 1865
