Famous Graves

Karl Mark Grave, Highgate Cemetery, London, England

On a recent visit to London, my friend Stevey who kindly puts us up, or should that be puts up with us, took us on a bus to Highgate Cemetary. He hadn’t a clue I was so interested in graveyards and looked rather perplexed to discover this morbid fascination. It was my first visit to Highgate and the cemetary although I have been to London many times, its seems that we never have any time just to wander and discover new areas. This time was different. The sun came out which was great for snapping. I didn’t bring the Nikon with me so had to rely on the trusted Samsung compact. The cemetery charges an entrance fee, which was a first for me but I suppose it takes alot of staff to keep it in good condition.

The lady in the hut (?) took our sterling and handed us a map of the cemetery which made it all the more easy to find graves of interest. It is full of famous remains. So off we wandered…
