Want to learn more about the cemetery’s environment? Two of FBEC Committee members have created a ‘Tree Walk’ around the cemetery for your enjoyment.
When the late Victorians created this urban cemetery for the spreading suburbs of Birmingham, it was to be a place not only for burials but for people to visit and appreciate the environment. It was not unusual for Victorian and then the Edwardian families to dress up in their Sunday finest, and following a visit to a loved one’s resting place to then enjoy a walk along the tree lined drives. You will be amazed at the variety of trees which were planted over a hundred years ago to create this extremely restful environment.
Now the tree walk is available in leaflet form from the holder, beneath our notice board, opposite the Lodge.
