Completed WW1 memorial area.

The Great War memorial bench has now been re sited close to the new memorial (on the old Oak Tree Island). It has been joined by an interpretation lectern explaining the part that Birmingham played during the Great war.

The bench is now clear of over hanging trees and less likely to be damaged by bird droppings.

The small area of Commonwealth War Graves, recently hedged by FBEC and St Albans pupils, has been planted with Primula Vulgaris and is looking especially good.

    Can you tell me who has paid for the bench please

      Hi Susan,
      The Friends presume that it was Bereavement Services of Birmingham City Council but you could contact them at Kings Norton Cemetery and check. It was not funded by the Friends.
