My New Cemetery Project

I am starting to work on a new cemetery book, sort of a sequel to 199 Cemeteries To See Before You Die. This one will focus on lesser-known, even more beautiful cemeteries.

Here’s the pile of research books I’m starting with:

So my question to you is this: do you have a beautiful cemetery I should consider for this book? I would love to get suggestions for places, especially outside the US.

You can drop a comment below or use the contact form above.

Thanks so much for your help!

  2. Hi Loren,
    My local (!) is Anfield Cemetary / graveyard. Very old, with some interesting residents and a dilapidated Victorian crypt. I think you’ll like it😁

  3. I’d like to suggest Fairmount and Riverside Cemeteries in Denver Colorado. Two sides of the same historic coin in Denver. Jim Cavoto of Fairmount Heritage Fountain would be an excellent first contact. 303-587-3183 is his contact number, please tell him Lesley referred you to him. Good luck and best wishes, I lol look forward to your new book. Cheers, Lesley Watson 303-887-2990 Lesleya4334@yahoo.com

    I recommend Zoshigaya Cemetery in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. Famous Japanese and foreigners there.

    I’m partial to my local cemetery, Oakwood Cemetery in Allegan, Michigan. It’s had it’s ups and downs since the cemetery’s establishment in 1835 but people really love it.

  8. Dear Loren, I’ve long admired your work and been aware of it and wanted you to know about mine. Life intervened. I never wrote and it doesn’t seem as though you know about my book, “Love Cemetery, Unburying the Secret History of Slaves” published by HarperOne, 2007/2008 (hard back/paperback). Love is a roughly 185 yr. old African American cemetery in East Texas. I’ve also got a documentary film in-progress titled “Resurrecting Love.”
