Warstone Cemetery, Hockley, Birmingham
Warstone Cemetery, Hockley, Birmingham
The Grade II-listed Warstone Cemetery lodge is constructed in Tudor Gothic style of blue brick with stone dressings.It previously contained a cemetery boardroom and offices but having recently been restored and converted it now houses commercial premises. Nowadays the area at the rear of the lodge is separated from the cemetery by iron railings and the formal approach through the carriage arch has been lost. This former main entrance, which gave way to a tree-lined cemetery drive, consisted of the gabled central carriageway of the cemetery lodge that was fronted by doors and gates. The present-day entrance to this part of the cemetery is to be found on the west side of the Lodge and consists of some steps and a short path. Within 10-12m the path rejoins the original main internal cemetery carriageway. The War Stone, which can be glimpsed (seemingly resting on the roof of the blue car) is a medium size glacial boulder that gives its name to both the street. It actually sits on a stone plinth with an associated plaque that gives some details of its age and origin.
