A visit to a part of the Council house that not many see !

Julia (Chairman) and Jane (Secretary) enjoyed a really fruitful meeting with Councillor Nicky Brennan at the Council House, Who knew that all these corridors and offices lay beneath the thickly carpeted and gold embossed upper floors? Councillor Brennan holds the portfolio that includes Cemeteries and Crematoria, so the meeting was a good opportunity to put names to faces.

Whilst leaving via the main entrance we spotted this memorial plaque. It  reminded Julia to continue with her research into ‘our’ Belgian refugee – little Mariette Jamme born in Verviers 16/9/1905 and died in Sparkbrook 23/6/1918 – her grave is 44 Section D2.  As you can see, Mariette made it to safety in England but lost her life violently in a fire. Watch our facebook site and this web site as when we have a full story we will share it.
