The Friends of Key Hill Cemetery was established in 2004 by a small group of people who were concerned at the deteration of the cemetery and alarmed at the potential loss of an important part of Birmingham’s heritage.
In 2009 Warstone Lane Cemetery was included, combing both the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries.
Volunteers of the Friends are the only group to maintain the cemeteries , restore gravestones as well researching the lives of those who rest in these important historic cemeteries.
We can assist the public with details of their family graves.
The Friends conduct guided tours the second Sunday in the month except for December. These Tours are free for paid members.
The Friends attend the Jewellery Quarter Festival in July plus local history fairs and attend the Heritage Open Days in September.
All proceeds from sales, memberships and tours go towards the restoration of the gravestones.
