Mortuary Chapel, Handsworth Cemetery is a Grade I listed chapel in the Church of England[1] in Handsworth, Birmingham, England.


It was designed by the architect William Bidlake in the Arts and Crafts style. Work started in 1909 and it was consecrated in 1910.[2]

The condition of the chapel deteriorated and English Heritage put it on their Buildings at Risk register.[3]

In 2012 English Heritage awarded £375,000 toward the restoration of the chapel. Birmingham City Council, who operate the cemetery, contributed another £325,000.
