London Cemeteries: An Illustrated Guide & Gazeteer is now in its 4th edition, and is a standard reference work and comprehensive guide to the cemeteries of London. This edition covers 126 cemeteries representing the majority of London boroughs as well as others within a 9 mile radius of central London.


The book is in two sections. The introductory chapters provide information on the history, planning, monuments and buildings, flora and fauna and epitaphs, while the gazetteer describes the individual cemeteries. Short biographies of some 2000 notable persons buried or commemorated in each place are also included. The book is illustrated with over 230 photographs, including many rarely seen archive images.


The re-issue of this classic text will provide architectural historians, genealogists, social and local historians and those with a general interest in cemeteries with an unrivalled and authoritative resource.
