I'm interested in cemeteries and like looking at all the old headstones. Highgate is a famous one where many well-known people are buried. I intend having a day out there soon. Karl Marx and Jeremy Beadle are interred there. Also Malcolm McLaren and author George Eliot. Have been to to all the local ones.

Anyone else like cemeteries? I find reading the ages of people when they died really interesting.

when I went to belgium we visited a lot of war cemeteries. seeing the mass graves for some of the soldiers was so eerie. i remember one of the graves I saw was for one of the youngest soldiers who died during one battle (i believe it was one of the battles of ypres), it was still really decorated in comparison to the other graves

Yep there's many war graves in Highgate too. Someone who went tells me to go at the weekend when more people are there as it can be a bit creepy if you're in there alone! Also there's often sections closed off in the week for funerals.

We went to Arlington Cemetery in Washington DC in 1987 and saw JFK's eternal flame. Anyone visiting DC should go there. Has a cordon round it but you can go within a few yards.

Asked my daughter if she'll go with me one Saturday and she says she can't think of anything more creepy and boring. Well each to their own.

I actually went there a few years ago for a school trip. It's HUGE but yeah, definitely some high points.

My friend got to participate in a wreath ceremony because she came from a military family. smile.gif

That's how the early mortality tables were compiled. Edmond Halley (of comet fame) was one of the pioneers. Hope you all enjoyed today's geeky comment.
