- The following details of Dudley's principle buildings were transcribed from Kelly's Directory of Warwickshire, 1895 by Rossbret. "The Cemetery, 5 acres in extent, was formed about 1850, the site being given by the late Earl of Dudley. It contains a mortuary Chapel and is under the control of the Vicar of Dudley.
The Town Hall, in Priory Street, is a spacious building in the Gothic style, erected by the late Earl of Dudley, and purchased and reconstructed by the Corporation. The Police Station adjoining was erected by the County, and has been transferred to the Corporation.
The Free Library and School of Art, at the junction of Priory Street and St James' Road, is an edifice of red terra cotta and brick in the Renaissance style, erected in 1884 at a cost of about £6,000 from plans by Messrs. Bateman and Corser, of Birmingham. The portion forming the Free Library is on the ground floor, and consists of a reading room, and a library containing 10,000 volumes. The Art Gallery in St James' Road has a good collection of pictures."
