Key Hill Cemetary (the last resting place of many of the great and the good inc. Chamberlain, Kenrick, Horton, Dawson, Bird, Martineau) although in desperate need of repair.

Not really, I stumbled across Dawson and with Chamberlain I knew the grave from a flickr photo but stumbled across it too. Found the Kenrick's and knew he wanted to be buried near his family (despite being offered funeral at Westminster Abbey) and so thought as he married a Kenrick he must be nearby. I found a map online but would need to find the coordinates for the relevant people although Wikipedia seems to be helpful there.

If your after Chamberlain, this photo has his grave centred horizontally and vertically.

I bet he was spinning in there when they those cretins in the '60's were doing their best to destroy all he created!

A great man; he deserves better as his memorial. It should be better preserved by the councillors today who are not fit to polish his shoes let alone stand in them.

Well, he does have a memorial fountain

It would be good though to have more statues, some of which I think exist in the museum stores, for some of the great Birmingham forebears such as Mason, Watt, Martineau. The Watt one by the library could go near Thinktank or Snow Hill as a reflection on engineering.

The Chamberlain Clock Tower at Birmingham University too - he was the First Chancellor of the Uni and had a lot to do with its establishment and the magnificent original buildings there.

I too think there should be a traditional statue of the great man somewhere prominent in the city centre. The only 'personification' of him like this was at the front of the doomed 'Forward' statue in Centenary Square, leading all the other figures towards the ICC and Symphony Hall.

He is one of my heroes for everything he achieved while Mayor Of Birmingham, if only we had a man of his standing and vision in such a prominent position now...

Feltip, you're a dude, I went looking for his grave several years ago in that cemetery, but much to my disappointment couldn't find it after several hours of looking. Thrilled by your photo, will have to go back again, now I know what I'm looking for. Interesting, how understated his entry on the gravestone is.

Yeah. It's all the more touching for he could have had a state funeral at Westminster Abbey but instead wanted to be buried with his family in Birmingham, his adopted city.

And with that legacy was his creation of municipal socialism with gas, water, and sewerage in local ownership.
