Hi Amanda,
I was wondering if the number would help but I noticed all the section are numbered from 1 instead of 1-10, 11-20. They are very kind at Lodge Hill so I'm sure they will find it for you.

Did the relatives pay to have the names engraved on the panels? For the size of the panels there are not many names on them - I wonder why they did the inscriptions so large?

Brenda, Nearest isn't always the choice, By than Council Cemeteries were open and availability of dates / price were often the deciding factor.
If they are in Gt Barr St, Hockley, Key Hill is nearest as is St Georges, and Warstone Lane, but Handsworth & Witton are also close enough, and may have been cheaper than.

Hello. i have just joined this site in hope that someone can help me. I have just discovered that my granddad is buried in Lodgehill cemetery. We are from ireland and I believe my grandad came here for work and later died. I have the grave number and area located on map. My dear dad can't visit the grave and has never seen it due to ill health. Where there be a possibility someone could take a pfoto of it for me? I would be so grateful and help with costs...Thank you Sharon

If you put the name, grave number etc on here, I'll try to take a picture in the next week or so. I have to go to the cemetery to put a wreath on my in-law's grave

I really can't thank you enough. My grandfathers name is JEREMIAH GALVIN died 29 April 1945. The grave is in section 7 and the grave number is 383. This is the roman catholic area. We have no idea if the grave had a marker/headstone as my granny and dad came back to ireland after my grandfathers death, but a simple pic of the grave whether marked or not would be just amazing, my dad would be so touched. You will be blessed for doing this thank you again....Yours gratefully.....Sharon Galvin xxx
