The Lye and Wollescote Cemetery Chapels
The Lye and Wollescote Cemetery Chapels, now known as the Thomas Robinson Building, in Cemetery Road, Lye is a Grade II listed building in recognition of its architectural and historical importance as part of the UK’s national heritage. It is a rare surviving example of a cemetery chapel designed to incorporate two chapels within a single building.
The nonconformist chapel was closed in the 1970s and the Church of England chapel also had to be closed following a fire in 1993 which caused minor damage to the interior. This building stood empty for several years and was at risk until the T managed the project to refurbish the building which was completed in March 2016. It is now in use, in a secular capacity, as a registration office serving the Stourbridge area of Dudley Borough.
The associated cemetery continues in use and is looked after by an active friends group.
