Yet another book on London's cemeteries that I have added to my book shelf!
As a guide at one of the 'Magnificent Seven' cemeteries, I tend to buy anything written about them to add to my collection. This is a worthy addition to my book shelf. Not too preachy or academic;plenty of pictures and information for any one interested in visiting these cemeteries.
There are bigger,more informative books out there, but this is ideal to slip into a bag (or big pocket) to dip in and out of on your travels.
Recommended.

Great book for a taster of the 'magnificent 7' you don't need to be strange, morbid or emo/goth to enjoy these sites. Fantastic to see the workmanship and love that went in to industry of death in the Victorian era.
I'm not from town but live not too far out, another fantastic cemetery is Brookwood. It's a huge site a bit like Highgate, divided by a road but much bigger. Lots of interesting monuments and set in beautiful green space.

The book offers a good overview and guide to the seven cemeteries it studies. Plenty of photographs that illustrate the point and show the similarities and differences in the sites. I will definitely read further about the seven cemeteries, but this book provides a great first read on the matter.

Good book, very informative and a very easy read. Only disappointment are the photographs - in black and white. Would like to see the book updated with colour pics, and site plans.

Very interesting, met the author at a tour of Nunhead Cemetery - it's worth going along when the big cemeteries have an open day to get an extra insight into their histories.

This is a very well produced product and lots of photographs. Personally I was disappointed in the book as it gives a overall description of the subject and therefore ideal to take with you when visiting any of the relevant cemeteries or for a quick understanding of them. I view myself as a bit of an expert on cemeteries which is why I was disappointed as I was looking for a more in-depth text.
