Description

Alan Morgan's Beyond the Grave explores over 30 last resting places in and around Newcastle upon Tyne - parish churchyards, municipal cemeteries, private burial grounds. Some have vanished altogether - though their occupants may still be there beneath the busy city streets. Alan has investigated their histories, and the occasionally strange stories of their various residents, from famous shipbuilders and engineers to the inventor of the kipper. Beyond the Grave includes plans of the larger cemeteries to help readers who wish to explore them, a brief history of burial practices through the ages, and an explanation of the symbols that often decorate the elaborate memorials of the past. This book is the companion to Alan Morgan's immensely popular A Fine and Private Place, which focuses on the remarkable story of that 'Highgate of the North', Jesmond Old Cemetery.
