BurialsMicrofilm 1847-1899
Information: St. Bartholemew's was the third church to be built in the original parish of Birmingham, and was constructed in 1749 to accommodate the rising population in the east of the parish and to ease the strain on St. Martin's. The land was gifted by Joseph Jennens who owned much of the area, known as the Jennens estate. St. Bartholemew's became a chapelry in 1847, so was given its own parish from that of St. Martin's. Attached was Park Street burial ground which was converted into a public garden in 1880, some of which still survives. In 1886 there was a mission room in Fox Street.

BurialsMicrofilm 1779-1884
A parish was assigned in 1841, out of St. Martin's. In 1882 the disused burial ground was laid out as a garden for the use of the public.
Information: Designed by Joseph Pickford, St. Mary's was built to ease the strain on St. Martin's in 1774. The design was unusual in that it was built in a hexagon shape, and William Hutton described it as having 'too little steeple and too much roof'.* The spire and tower were rebuit in 1866, though the design was similar to the original. St. Mary's was originally part of St. Martin's parish but achieved its own right as a parish in 1841, though it was only a small parish (1/4 mile square), and in 1868 it became a vicarage. The church was closed in 1925. The church was originally on Catherine Street, but the name changed to Whittal Street.

The church ran a Sunday School which moved to the infant school nearby on Ann Street when that opened in 1825. It also ran schools in the evening to teach children reading, writing and general arithmetic. The church established a number of other charitable provisions for the poor including a Provident Institution to enable children to have medicine and medical care, a shoe and clothing club available at 2d per week, and a visiting society to help the poor and spread the word.

For a list of the streets in St. George's parish in 1851 see here.
The church stood on Tower Street and near Great Hampton Row. The parish of St. George's was formed in 1830, when a rectory was built. In 1844 some of that parish was taken to be included in St. Stephen's, and in 1856 more again to St. Matthias's. The church had cost £12,735, cheap for a church at the time, and had 1378 free seats and 581 paying.

The following information was taken from a gov. website that has now gone offline. I did not manage to record all the information before the site was removed, and, although all care was taken for accuracy, that cannot be guaranteed. The sections cover the various sub-districts of the 1851 census in Birmingham and the roads that were recorded in each of those districts. The sub-districts are, in alphabetical order: All Saints, Aston Manor (new, 2019), Deritend & Bordesley (new 2019), Duddeston (new 2019), St. George's, Ladywood (new, 2019), St. Martin's, St. Mary's, St. Paul's, St. Peter's (new 2019), St. Philip's and St. Thomas's. You can follow the orange links to find out more abouts the buildings on the different streets and in those areas. We would be very grateful for any correction of mistakes or additional information.
