    Looking for burials in one of the following Cemeteries ?

    Brandwood End cemetery
    Handsworth cemetery
    Key Hill Cemetery
    Kings Norton cemetery
    Lodge Hill cemetery and crematorium
    Quinton cemetery
    Sutton Coldfield cemetery
    Sutton Coldfield crematorium
    Sutton New Hall cemetery
    Warstone Lane cemetery
    Witton cemetery
    Yardley cemetery and crematorium

    Then try searching here
    Code:
     https://birminghamburialrecords.co.uk/
    It doesn't tell you the plot or who is buried with them or even their age (you can get that from a search on the GRO) but it does give you the Year, Month and Cemetery that they were buried in.

    You can order a copy but it costs £20 :eek:

    I have a few in a tree I'm doing, they are not my relations, but at least I now have a month and cemetery to add to the tree instead of just a year and district.

    Update

    The cost of purchasing the record has now changed.

    A3 copy = £28 :eek:
