|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Situated in the parish of St. Mark with St. Saviour, Saltley. A united benefice created in 2005. The church was consecrated in 1851. The land (then a piece of Warwickshire meadow) was given by the then Lord Norton. During WW2 many of the stained glass windows were destroyed. In some cases the windows of today were created from the remains of the broken glass. There is a total of nine CWGC WW1 war graves scattered about the churchyard. It has been several decades since the churchyard has been used for new burials. Some memorials are in a very degraded state, and full information on these is taken from a 1989 survey.
As of 2014 the churchyard is plagued by prolific growths of Japanese Knotweed, giving the west side an appearance of a tropical jungle! Particularly affected is section A rows 7-12, hence the lack of photo's from this area.
