London's many cemeteries, churches, and graveyards are the last resting places of a multitude of important people from many different walks of life. Politicians, writers, and military heroes rub shoulders with engineers, courtesans, artists, and musicians, along with quite a few eccentric characters. Arranged geographically, this comprehensive guide describes famous graves in all the major cemeteries and churches in Greater London, including Highgate, Kensal Green, Westminster Abbey, and Saint Paul's Cathedral, as well as the city churches and many suburban parish churches.

The book gives biographical details, information on the monuments, and is richly illustrated. As well as being a historical guide, it also serves as an indispensable reference guide for any budding tombstone tourist.

Peter Matthews worked for many years for the London Tourist Board. During this time he studied to become a registered London Blue Badge guide. He has also written London for Families, London's Bridges, and London's Statues and Monuments for Shire.
