How many of us visit a cemetery for reasons other than grieving a loved one?

I’m sure the numbers are few, and that is unfortunate because there is so much to view, appreciate and learn in a cemetery.

History lives within its boundaries, and art too – just take a moment to roam among the graves and you will discover beautiful monuments, statues and gravestones.

From cemeteries around the world, this blog will reveal the artistry of monuments and gravestones and the literary verses that accompany them and reveal much about the dearly departed.

Enjoy!
