    About this event

    As part of the celebrating Birmingham's Burial Grounds Project volunteers have been busy in the Warstone Lane Cemetery, and are soon to start in Key Hill Cemetery, collecting the inscriptions and details of the individual gravestones and memorials in the two cemeteries.

    This session is to add the collected details onto a digital map of the cemeteries helping to create a digital, searchable archive of Birmingham's first cemeteries.

    Our burial grounds are full of stories. They are the chronicles of our communities and mark the live of people who may not be noted anywhere else. The inscriptions on the stones tell us of love, long lives, travel and tragedy, families and fashion. Join our free sessions and help us build an archive of these stories.

    Please contact George (george@cfga.org.uk) if you have any concerns and wish to discuss your access needs.

    No experience needed, we will show you what you need to do.

    There is no charge to take part in this session.
