Following three years research in the far-flung reaches of the British Library and the dusty corners of the National Newspaper Archive,
'The Sexton's Book of Tales'
is currently being compiled.
Richly illustrated, the book provides a biographical tour of Highgate Cemetery, detailing the extraordinary true-life stories of more than 200 permanent inhabitants. Subsequent chapters include: the History of Highgate, Fantasy Graveyards, the A-Z of Tombstone Art and Symbols, and Omen & Superstition, providing a fascinating background history to the Victorian Valhalla which is Highgate, one of the world's greatest cemeteries.
