Overview

Where can a London visitor find a dog guarding his master's grave for eternity, an Arabian tent of stone commemorating a great explorer, or the cemetery that inspired Bram Stoker's Dracula?

Where can a London visitor find a dog guarding his master's grave for eternity, an Arabian tent of stone commemorating a great explorer, or the cemetery that inspired Bram Stoker's Dracula? Giving visitors all the information needed to explore more than 80 cemeteries, this pocket guide features detailed reviews for each cemetery complete with a who's who of famous permanent residents, opening times, and travel information. London's cemeteries are places of peace and tranquility, but they are also a fascinating barometer of the city's social history. Intriguing stories of courage, personal triumph, and domestic tragedy lie behind the gravestones and mausolea, many of which are masterpieces of commemorative art. Today London's cemeteries are also valued as a habitat for flora and fauna and are great destinations for wildlife lovers.
