Beautiful certificate from the Birmingham Church of England Cemetery Company issued in 1848. This item has been hand signed by the Company’s Secretaries, and is over 163 years old.
The Warstone Lane Cemetery was opened in 1848 by the Birmingham Church of England Cemetery Company and acquired by the Birmingham City Council under a compulsory purchase order in 1951. The cemetery has two tiers of catacombs, whose unhealthy vapours led to the Birmingham Cemeteries Act which required that non-interred coffins should be sealed with lead or pitch.
