Cemeteries provide numerous creative writing opportunities, from writing a ghost story to exploring poetry, epitaphs and even newspaper obituaries. A selection of ideas are included here.

Further information about stories linked to Lye and Wollescote Cemetery and Chapels can be found in two publications: The Lye and Wollescote Cemetery and Chapels - a Victorian Cemetery and its Notable Burials and The Lost Twenty Nine - remembering the soldiers of the Great War buried and commemorated in the Lye and Wollescote Cemetery.
