The graveyards of Britain have been combed in search of unusual tombstone inscriptions, to create this collection of the weirdest, wackiest and most amusing, including Mrs Phoebe Crew of Norwich who as a midwife, brought 9730 children into the world. Other epitaphs include that of John Tyrwitt 'Here lays John Tyrwitt, A learned Divine, He died in a Fit, Through drinking Port Wine'. In an age when many of the inscriptions are being lost due to property development and pollution, this book is both a celebration and monument to the best of reverent and even sometimes irreverent gravestone wit. All the epitaphs appear on the righthand side and the location is indicated on the left, with sometimes a historical note or a quote from "The Churchyard's Handbook" or "The Bible".
