This gravestone marks the grave of a Nanetta Stocker, who nowadays we'd describe as a person of small stature. Apparently she was a 19th century showbiz A-lister despite standing only 3ft 3ins tall. It seems strange to us now, but back in the days the Victorian had a taste for the unusual, something we'd now describe as insensitive.

The gravestone is crumbling, weather by the elements and partially covered in moss so you can just about make out the name.

To be honest, this is a total waste of time. The gravestone is kind of difficult to locate for the aforementioned reasons. There it very little to see, but if you're determined to look for it anyway, then it's on the grass to the left of the statue of the Philip the Apostle, opposite the entrance to the church.

I'm impressed this has a Trip Advisor listing. It is literally a small gravestone. It's located in the cathedral grounds and I walked straight past it as I entered the cathedral. I saw it on the way out and thought it was tiny. I now see there's a TA listing for it! Wow!

When I was looking at things to do in Birmingham this came up. Turns out it is in the wee park right across from our hotel and we had walked past it a fair few times.

There are graves in there from the 1800s and a very calming surrounding, trees and benches to take a seat and just enjoy the serenity and view.

The grave is the smallest there and we looked up some of the info on our phones whilst there as there really wasn't anything sign posting it or info near by. The writing on the grave (see the photo) is very faded but you can still make it out id you get close enough.

Worth a look/walk through the park and reading up on who she was.

So pleased to make Nanetta Stockers grave my 1000th review on Trip Advisor, it feels rather apt to share my milestone with the gravestone of a memorable lady.
The grave stone is small and covered by moss so is very hard to miss but Its right outside the cathedral and worth looking out for.
A lovely interesting find.

Definitely worth looking out for especially if you'll be visiting the cathedral anyway. A small tomb stone for the smallest lady in the kingdom. Sounds like something out of a fairytale. RIP.

I made the effort to visit her grave whilst in the churchyard, already knowing she was the smallest woman in the kingdom.

I agree with the previous reviewer, there is not much to see at this grave, but it's nice to find outside Birmingham Cathedral, and made us think for a few minutes.
Smallish gravestone, and the writing is well-worn, but still visible.

The grave of the smallest woman in the kingdom is a fairly humble affair. It is a small lichen covered grave in the grounds of St. Philips Cathedral in Central Birmingham.

The grave is located to the right of the entrance of the cathedral itself (as you face it). The wording is still visible although it can be tricky to read.

All in all a nice curiosity.
