100 Cemeteries to Visit Before You Die

Famous and Curious Cemeteries: A Pictorial, Historical, and Anecdotal View of American and European Cemeteries and the Famous and Infamous People WhoFamous and Curious Cemeteries: A Pictorial, Historical, and Anecdotal View of American and European Cemeteries and the Famous and Infamous People Who by John Francis Marion

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This encyclopedia from 1977 explores 51 international cemeteries in depth, followed by visits to 22 American Military graveyards from Mexico City to North Africa, which special emphasis on the battle monuments to the World Wars in Europe. At the end of all of that, it breezes through a hundred more burial grounds that rate a paragraph or two. All of this is impeccably researched and documented with more than 250 black-and-white photographs. If you are new to visiting cemeteries, this is your 100 Places to See Before You Die.

Amazon has several listings for the book: Famous and Curious Cemeteries: A Pictorial, Historical, and Anecdotal View of American and European Cemeteries and the Famous and Infamous People Who

It’s worth tracking down a copy for yourself.
