Celebrating Birmingham’s Burial Grounds

Funder; Historic England
Project duration; October 2019 to November 2021

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 survey the monument inscriptions, the social history to be uncovered within the Birmingham Archive and the biodiversity.
