20. ALL SAINTS, Gravelly Hill (George Rd.), was dedicated as a chapel of ease to St. Barnabas's, Erdington, in 1901. (fn. 86) The church, which was consecrated in 1928, (fn. 87) is a simple rectangular building of red brick with stone dressings designed by V. S. Peel of Birmingham (fn. 88) in the Gothic style. The top of the east gable projects to house a bell, and a lowbuilt vestry at the east end and porch at the west end have been added. A Conventional District was attached to the church in 1923. (fn. 89) In 1929 a parish was assigned out of St. Barnabas's and St. Peter and St. Paul's, Aston, and the living became a vicarage in the gift of the bishop. (fn. 90) Part of the parish was taken to form the parish of St. Mark, Stockland Green (1934). (fn. 91)
