A Fine and Private Place: Jesmond Old Cemetery tells the remarkable story of Newcastle's own necropolis since its opening in 1836. This 'Highgate of the North' contains a wealth of social history. From merchants to murder victims, from philanthropists to fever fatalities, Alan Morgan also describes over 100 of the famous - and not so famous - who lie in Jesmond Old Cemetery. John Dobson, the founder of Fenwick's, Bainbridge's, Malings, the Hancock Museum, and many others who helped shape the city we know today, found their last resting place here. The haunting beauty of the cemetery, and some extraordinary examples of the monumental mason's art, are celebrated in fine photography.
