Join Sarah Moody from Commonwealth War Graves Commission for a FREE online talk. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission works across the  globe to ensure that the 1.7 million men and women from the Commonwealth who lost their lives in the two World Wars are not forgotten. Find out more about the history, the work of the Commission and stories of those they commemorate.

Key Hill and Warstone Lane Cemeteries both have War Memorials, plus a number of war graves so this is a topic which is very important to the project. This talk promises to be informative and inspiring, looking at the amazing work done by the commission locally and globally.

This talk will take place via Zoom. Ticket holders will be sent a link and password to join the zoom session on the day of the talk.

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.
