J.Q Cemeteries Memories Event Sat 25 APRIL 2020
Warstone Lane Cemetery . Time 1pm- 3pm

Both Key Hill Cemetery ( formally the General Cemetery ) and Warstone Lane Cemetery have been part of people’s lives in the Jewellery Quarter in Hockley, Birmingham for generations and many people may have memories they wish to share . Whether you are a local resident , work in the Jewellery Quarter , attend a school or Uni close by, have relatives buried in the two historic cemeteries , have simply visited for a stroll or taken a tour we would love to hear from you .

We are gathering recollections, stories, images, of the cemeteries online over the coming months in the run up to the event , and hope we will learn more on the day.

We want to know why these historic cemeteries are special to you, what your memories of them are and how you hope they will be used in future.

If you would like to share a memory or a photograph of the cemetery , please email
