    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The Jewellery Quarter Research Trust [JQRT] is a not for profit trust whose aim is to research the history and times of people and places in and around Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter particularly the two historic cemeteries at Key Hill and Warstone Lane. See our website at

    The Grade II* and Grade II cemeteries are an important part of Birmingham's history and heritage but more than that they are a valuable lesson to teach and inspire young and old of the skills and opportunities that still exist in this great city.
    The JQRT already provides families, researchers, academics and students with searchable databases, biographical and cultural information and is part of a Heritage Lottery Fund bid to develop and widen its activities.

    The cemeteries are the last resting place of eight of Birmingham mayors, of alderman, councillors, M.P.s, industrialists, ministers, politicians, a holder of the Victoria Cross and many hero's of war and of reform, a British royal ancestor and the son of an aboriginal king, and of tens of thousands of people who, by their skills and determination helped make Birmingham the great city it is today.

    For people who cannot visit because of a disability or distance the cemeteries the JQRT need to create a virtual Tour of both cemeteries that will allow people to experience a virtual tour that will also provide a wealth of information.
