Kings Norton Cemetery/Old Kings Norton Cemetery
« on: Wednesday 22 November 17 09:18 GMT (UK) »
Hope this is the right Board :-\
Hi I wonder if anyone can help me with a query I have and don't seem to be able to find the answer. I know there is a Kings Norton Cemetery. But i have found references to "Old Kings Norton Cemetery". Are these two different Cemetries ? or are they the same and why the reference to Old. Does anyone know when it/they opened please

Many thanks
Brummygirl  :)

There's also the church cemetery of St. Nicolas on The Green in the village.

I suppose it depends on the date you are looking at.

Obvious answer, perhaps  :-\  Why don't you contact the cemetery and ask them the question?
