The Railwaymen's Graves were rededicated at a ceremony at St John's Church on 16 July 2014.

The graves commemorate Thomas Scaife and Joseph Rutherford, who were killed in an accident at Bromsgrove Railway Station in 1840 and are buried in St.John's churchyard.
The Bromsgrove Society made a donation towards the cost of restoring the memorial, which had deteriorated over the years. These unique gravestones are now returned to condition worthy of the men killed and may be viewed at the town's cemetery.
The background to the project is set out in the March 2012 edition of the Society's newsletter and in Bromsgrove Advertiser of 26 February 2014.
