I picked it up in a box full of books at a yard sale, and found it fascinating. I suppose it's out of print but if you can get a used one it's worth reading. Words and pictures describe a very fashionable 19th century London cemetery. Highgate was London's most fashionable cemetery for most of a century, and then was mostly forgotten as weeds and vines overtook it. More recently a group of "Friends of Highgate" have been clearing away the tangled vegetation and revealing the ornate monuments and intriguing sculptures. The original management kept detailed records of who is buried where. Besides for the expensive area with it's stone carvings much of Highgate is common folks, average age only thirty something, indicative of the hardships of the working class. The last half the book is photos of monuments, lions, horses, angels, cherubs, a lamb, and a faithful do keep eternal watch over master's grave.
