A practical, outdoor session looking at how and why record burial ground memorials.

Burial Grounds are full of stories, of lives long lived and those cut tragically short. They chart the history of our communities, they tell stories of immigration, war and disasters, of fashion and wealth and it is this rich social history we will explore.

Join the Celebrating Birmingham’s Burial Grounds Project in finding out how and why to record memorials and help us capture this important resource of Birmingham’s social history.

This is a practical, outdoor session on a site with a variety of terrain including wide surfaced pathways. This session can accommodate those with additional access needs please contact george@cfga.org.uk if you wish to discuss this with the organiser.

Thanks to our funders (The National Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic England and The Garifield Weston Foundation) these sessions are free.

This session will be run in accordance with the current government Covid guidance.

Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries Project


We had an amazing day yesterday at the @jqbid #jqfestival collaborating with @jo_gane1 @suslifeuk @dontgointothecellar and of course the @friendskeyhillwarstonelanecem meeting so many amazing people

We couldn't have done it without everyone's help, including loads of support behind the scenes from @bhamcitycouncil @coffin_works @thehivejq and all the amazing #JQHeritageSquad volunteers.

Now we need to sleep for a week but then we'll be buzzing with ideas for 2023!

We are very excited about 'Diamonds in the Rough' a unique tour with storytelling & live performance, exploring queer history in the JQ Cemeteries for LGBT History Month.
