Many of our followers will be familiar with the Civilian Garden of Remembrance in Brandwood End but not so many of you will realise that this is the final resting place of close to sixty civilians who lost their lives during local bombing raids in 1940/41.
The names of those buried here are listed in a book of Remembrance held at King’s Norton but not recorded anywhere in the cemetery.
The Friends gave been working with a local Stonemason to create a Memorial in the Civilian Garden listing their names.
We hope by this summer we will have raised the funds and the memorial will be installed. Please watch our site for further information.
