Visit to the Graves at Birmingham

Went over to Moseley, Kings Heath, Kings Norton and Brandwood end Cemetery today to view the Bladon graves and take digital photos of them. As it was Easter the churches were open so took advantage of that as well. Couldn't find 2 family graves at Moseley - HALLAM and ONLEY as it looks like the church yard has been cleared. Kings Heath was fine only 2 there. Brandwood End Cemetery was easy to find the graves as I had a plot plan sent some years ago. Alot of thhe graves there are broken and in poor state of repair. I can see why there is a Friends of Brandwood End cemetery ow. Last stop was Kings Norton where ther are a numberof graves. In the past I have only found 1. However I was out of luck as the church yard had been cleared and most of the graves were less than 10 years old. At least I have the monumental inscriptions.
