I used to work in a factory which had this cemetary at the back, it was a steep climb down with a rope. I used to jog around there in the lunch break in the 80's. ;D

Hanging about like that can have grave consequences, especially if you put your foot in it ::)

Key Hill Cemetery - A few facts (sorry for any repetition) The cemetery was opened on 23 May 1836 and closed 1982. The buriel ground had a mortuary chapel but never had a church - it was originally known as The Birmingham General Cemetery and was created as a non-denominational/non-conformist burield ground. Many famous Brummies reside there including the Chamberlains. My grandfather was a master jeweller and might well have been buried in the grounds of the Jeweller's Church in the Jewellery Quarter had it not closed its gates to new buriels before he died in 1952, he is buried in Key Hill Cemetery together with my grandmother who joined him in 1959.
This link will take you to a map of the site, choose OS 25inch, 1892-1914, you'll need to navigate a bit: http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=18&lat=52.4959&lon=-1.9081&layers=176&b=6
