About the Friends: The Friends officially formed in 2004 by a small group of people who were concerned at the deterioration of the non non denominational Grade II listed Key Hill cemetery formally known as The General Cemetery and were alarmed at the potential loss of an important part of Birmingham’s heritage.

In 2009 the Warstone Lane Cemetery - Church of England was included, combining both cemeteries in Birmingham Jewellery Quarter, Hockley

The Friends do maintenance work in both cemeteries and raise funds to repair damaged and broke graves, hold regular litter picks and clean up days, and research the lives of those who rest in these important historic cemeteries.

The Friends hold an index of burials for both cemeteries and can assist families with details of your ancestors resting place aiding your family history.

The Friends have attended The Genealogy Show at the NEC, the Jewellery Quarter Festival, plus Local History Fairs & attend the Heritage Open Days in September.
