Potter's Field. Contains some of the earliest burials in the cemetery, a consequence of the cholera epidemic of 1873. Adalimer King (January 1870) is the first recorded burial in this part of Oak Hill, which eventually included more than 1,500 burials. Interments ceased around 1889, about the same time that a new pauper's burial ground opened up in the vicinity of Birmingham's zoo and botanical gardens.
