Sessions & Events

 
The Beautiful Burial Ground Project aims to inspire, engage and support interest groups, communities and individuals to learn about, research and survey the biodiversity and heritage of their local burial grounds.  We aim to do this by offering a range of training sessions and events.
Celebrating Birmingham’s Burial Grounds Project focusses on five burial grounds in Birmingham, exploring their social history and architectural heritage by recording the details of the monuments onto a bespoke digital map.  Please look out for the monument recording sessions and other events connected to the project. Find out more from the project page.

 

All sessions are free of charge, anyone is welcome to book on.

Memorial Inscription Entry.
Through memorial recording sessions over the summer we collected the inscriptions of over 500 memorials in the cemeteries of Brandwood End and Warstone Lane as part of the Celebrating Birmingham’s Burial Grounds Project.  We are now running small sessions to enter the records we found on to the web-based map together. 
The sessions are free to take part in, please book your place by following the links below.
We have a limited number of lap tops available so if you have your own that is easily transportable please bring it with you.
Please get in touch with george@cfga.org.uk for more information.
