Celebrating Birmingham Burial Grounds Project

Celebrating Birmingham’s Burial Grounds

Funder; Historic England

Project duration; October 2019 to November 2022

This project focuses on the social history to be discovered and shared by exploring 5 burial grounds in Birmingham which are:

Key Hill Cemetery , Warstone Lane Cemetery , Handsworth Cemetery , Brandwood Cemetery ,St Barnabas Closed Churchyard.

Using a bespoke digital system we will map the 5 sites and run a series of events encouraging volunteers to help to record the monument inscriptions creating a searchable archive which shines a light on the stories of the communities that surround these burial grounds.

We shall also be running some small events looking at the biodiversity of burial grounds.
