4.0 out of 5 stars A great read and a full of fascinating facts, 20 April 2012

This review is from: The Victorian Cemetery (Shire Library) (Paperback)
Whilst funerals are seen as a sad state of affairs in the modern world, in the Victorian time they were a time of pomp and ceremony and those that had the most money got the better send off. What this book from Shire does is take you on a tour of the memorials from that time so that the reader can see what was not only popular but some wonderful pieces of architecture left over from the time period.

The book is informative, has some great information within and when backed with a title such as the Victorian Undertaker, allows the reader to get a glimpse into what feels at time a hugely profitable area. Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars the victorian cemetery, 19 Dec. 2011
This review is from: The Victorian Cemetery (Shire Library) (Paperback)
the victorian cemetery was very interesting if like me you are researching your past relatives you spend quite a bit
of time in old churchyards and it is good to see how the dead are remembered with different grave stones.It would be great if my relatives were rich and had headstones with all the family details but alas my folk were as they say peasants,no money no stones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating reading, 16 April 2010
This review is from: The Victorian Cemetery (Shire Library) (Paperback)
Written on a topic that the majority of us take for granted, this book gives a wonderful incite into the cemeteries of the UK which are as much a part of the country as its railways or schools. A must read for all those who wish to learn a little more about this fascinating subject.
