A very sad but beautiful place to visit some amazing examples of architecture and some of the memorials were enormous. If you're a graveyard enthusiast then this is a must see although it's not for everyone. I personally found it very beautiful

From triumph to tragedy, from pride to humility you'll find it all spelt out on the headstones and in the extravagant architecture. And it's so... More

I went as a volunteer to tidy up some very old graves and plant some flowers. Was astounded by the Victorian splendour of the place,and touched quite deeply reading the headstones(old and new).Need to go again for a longer look around
