Robin Hood Cemetery and Crematorium 

(Solihull Cemetery and Crematorium)
 

In 1917 Birmingham Children Hospital opened on Ladywood Road, Dunlop tyre company opened at Fort Dunlop and Solihull Cemetery opened as a result of the expanding population and new need for burial sites in and around Birmingham.

Fourteen years later in 1931 a traditional Chapel is built on the 45 acre site. As then, the grounds consist of ancient woodland as well as traditional graves, lawn graves, Remembrance Gardens and specialised memorial areas.

Just over 100 years later in 1958 a modern Crematorium was designed and built for the modern times. In 2017 the extra demand on services called for a modification and extension to the original building.  It is now state-of-art.
