John Barnsley and Sons

Builders

As builders of most of Victorian and Edwardian Birmingham (the Council House, the City Museum & Art Gallery, the Children’s Hospital, the Grand Hotel, the Calthorpe Estate, and so on) the firm of John Barnsley & Sons was a phenomenon.


Within a hundred years the Barnsley family became aristocracy (as well as architects, furniture makers, silversmiths, fruit growers and medical advisers to Royalty), and built the Hall of Memory at what is now Centenary Square.
