Lye and Wollescote Cemetery Chapels Interpretive Materials

The Cemetery Chapels Interpretive Materials include:

  • the World War I book 'The Lost Twenty Nine' and a World War I exhibition which puts the book into context,
  • a Cemetery Trail leaflet,
  • the Lye Town Trail leaflet,
  • 4 interpretive panels in the cemetery,
  • outreach materials which comprise photobooks and handling boxes and
  • a travelling exhibition which will be displayed in libraries, community centres, day centres, care homes, schools and shopping centres.

Community artist David Johnson (Dj) worked with Rufford and Thorns Primary Schools to create designs for 30 panels which were displayed on the site hoardings.

Glass artist Paul Floyd produced two large stained glass windows for the building which he prepared with students from Redhill High School and Kidderminster College. The windows are a key feature in the building.

A comprehensive set of educational materials have also been prepared which are available for schools at primary and secondary level. It is hoped these will be used on a regular basis by schools who can employ sessional workers recruited by the project to help them.

Additional resources include:

  • online links with other cemeteries (and their educational programmes) providing opportunities to share material, experiences and best practice and
  • links with universities offering death studies to raise awareness and understanding of Lye and Wollescote Cemetery.

Read more about these additional resources on our Research page.

We hope you will explore and enjoy each element of the interpretive and educational package.
