1880 – Cemetery Lodge & Lych Gate, Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire

Architect: T.W. Cutler


“The Cemetery Lodge and Lych-gate, given in this number of our journal, is built upon the Sutton Coldfield Burial-ground, with red brick facings, timber framing filled in with plaster, and the roof covered with Broseley tiles. Referring to the ground-plan, the e.c.’s should have been marked earth closets, and carriageway covered way. The cemetery is only a short distance from the church, and has no chapel in the grounds. The robing-room is planned so that service can be read from the windows, if desired, the coffin and mourners resting under cover. The work has been executed by Messrs. C. Jones and Son, contractors, of Birmingham, from the designs and under the superintendence of Thomas Mr. W. Cutler, F.R.I.B.A., of 5, Queen-street, W.C.” Published in The Building News, September 10 1880.
