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. Please see the project page for more details.

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.
Each month there are recording sessions in each of the four burial grounds we are currently working in. There are also data entry sessions for each site where we add the collected information on to the digital maps to create a searchable archive for that burial ground. Times of he sessions vary to accommodate as many people who want to take part as possible.
