13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By R. Wooldridge on 9 Oct 2001
Format: Paperback
If you, like me, are facinated by graveyards and cemeteries then this is your book. It is well written with a history of the cemetery movement and guides to monumental art and cemetary archetecture. There are nice descriptions of all the cemeteries in London with lists of their more prominent occupants. The book has as its themes both the interest to be found in exploring cemeteries (more popular than we might think)and the sad state of so many due to the neglect of many London Boroughs. If you need the AtoZ for London streets then you need this guide as you navigate around its cemeteries. If you have not tried the joys of a day out at the cemetary then this book will inspire you.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Peter Daly on 28 Jan 2012
Format: Paperback
The book begins with five general chapters but is mostly taken up with a gazetteer of 126 cemeteries with an essay on their location, acreage, history, topography and noteworthy monuments. In this it is authoritative and readable. It also contains 200+ photographs (in black and white). Unexpectedly for a book of this type there are many laugh-out-loud moments, resulting from the sharp descriptions of some of the lowlights (the 3-paragraph demolition job on Trent Park is a hoot).

By contrast, the lists of `residents' is routinely dull, over-populated with Victorian worthies who hardly count as famous these days. (And the lists are of people, not monuments, as unmarked grave-dwellers are included.) It is not obvious that these lists have been updated much since the first edition 20 years ago. Revising with more recent occupants would easily make this a 5 star publication. Grave locations within the cemeteries are not given, but this may be too big an ask.

Overall strongly recommended, but perhaps best read in conjunction with the findagrave.com website to identify more contemporary - and interesting - residents.

Format: Paperback
The authors of this book should be congratulated, they are both witty and informative, it is an excellent guide book to what is a vanishing part of our history; there is some excellent research as well.

The lists of notable interments are good, even though many of them will be unknown to today's reader, it does go to show how fame is such a fleeting thing and most people end up gone and forgotten.

I highly recommend this book; it would be nice if the authors would do the same guide for cemeteries outside of London
