Looking for wildlife?

Since we posted sightings of muntjac deer, bats and other wildlife there have been several visitors coming along to find these lovely animals.  Please note that the Cemetery is there for people to pay their respects to those that have passed on, and to enjoy some quiet moments reflection.  The Cemetery is ideal, because it is so quiet, for wildlife to enjoy the natural environment BUT they are not there our pleasure.  Please do not ask the staff where they can be found; even if they knew, most creatures only come out at night when the Cemetery is closed and the people have gone home.  Please respect the Cemetery, it’s wildlife inhabitants, the staff and other visitors.  Many thanks.

Are you after information on lost graves?

The ground staff at Brandwood End Cemetery are constantly being asked to help people find graves – much as they would like to help they really can’t.  They don’t have the information.  Since the Lodge was flooded some months ago the office for Brandwood End Cemetery has moved to Kings Norton.  But here is some information which may help >>

Or if you want to contact the Office there details can be found here >>
