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 Ground s 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.

The Snowflake Trail is back for a 3rd year in Key Hill Cemetery and the weather laid on some real snow for us too!

The trail is free and open to everyone from 18th December until 1st January. Wrap up warm and explore, hunting for wooden snowflakes which hang from some of the trees forming a trail around the cemetery. Add the name of your loved one to our memory tree using the stars and snowflakes provided. Choose a decorative snowflake from the trail to take home for your own tree.

Please take care while walking as paths may be slippery in snowy, icy oe wet conditions. Please visit during daylight hours only.

Share your photos of your snowflake on your tree at home and tag us!
