Visiting Lodge Hill Cemetery

On 10th November our Year 5 visit to Lodge Hill Cemetery using in soldiers footsteps to find out about World War One in Birmingham. Afterwards we asked a teacher and some of the children about the visit.  Video and sound clip are brief edited responses:


Some images from the visit:


Finding names on the memorial wall


Welsh poppies as an act of remembrance


G. Thornlely gave a false name to enlist – was he under age for conscripting?


Finding the burial from references on the Memorial Walls

For more please see in soldiers footsteps.
