Format: Paperback
I picked this book up from the library on a whim, and I was very delighted to have read it. The book itself is very short (60 pages), and focuses on British Victorian cemeteries. It deals mostly with the causes for the explosion of cemeteries in the Victorian era, as well as their meticulous layouts and elaborate monuments and grave markers. This book was exceedingly well-research and written in a very engaging style. My only complaint is that I wish it had been longer - the work by Ms. Rutherford is really outstanding, and could have easily filled a book three times as long.

It is a super book, but was not exactly what I was looking for. I am doing a long cemetery history project for a funeral home/ cemetery combination where I work and was looking for information about American Cemetery history, etc. ThaVictorian Cemetery Historyt said, I still am very happy to have the book.
