Obituary – Chris Upton


Jewellery Quarter Heritage is sad to hear of the recent death of Chris Upton at the age of 61 years, after a battle with cancer.

Chris’ career included working as a historical consultant on the hit television programme Peaky Blinders, but he has been heavily involved with the history of the Jewellery Quarter for many years and a lot of people have enjoyed joining him on walks around the Quarter.
