Seasons Greetings to all our supporters from Friends of Brandwood End Cemetery

2013 has been a year when Friends of Brandwood End have had to take a step back and think again about the way they want to move forward in 2014. We were all very disappointed when Birmingham City Council had to withdraw their financial support for a lottery bid relating to the twin terracotta mortuary chapels at the centre of the cemetery. Along with many local organisations we saw the time when Birmingham would be in a position to support any bid we proposed move further and further away. We are now working with Bereavements Department to investigate alternative fund raising options but in the meantime we will continue with our other achievable projects within the cemetery, whilst keeping the chapels at the front of our campaign.

    The Chapels are beautiful. I’m sure anyone who has family buried in Brandwood End would be happy to contribute to the fund. Could you tell me where I can send a donation.

      Dear Janet,
      Thanks for your lovely comments. The Friends agree that every effort must be made to retain these lovely buildings but unfortunately we are talking about a large amount of funding.At present any donations we receive go into a general fund towards the many projects we have worked on within the cemetery and not specifically the chapels. In view of the recent set back concerning match funding from Birmingham City Council we are discussing starting fund raising efforts specifically for the chapels so would be most happy to receive any funds you feel appropriate. A cheque can be made out to FBEC and posted to our Treasurer
      Julian Pritchard(Treasurer FBEC) c/o The Lakeside Centre, Lifford Lane, Kings Norton, Birmingham.
      Thank you again and please watch our web page for updates.
      Jane Edwards (Chairman FBEC)
