“The most fun I’ve ever had with dead bodies – Bill Bryson

Must Reads: Graving may sound like a gloomy activity but Treneman’s fascinating trawl through burial sites proves it is anything but. — The Observer

Ann Treneman proves in his delightful as well as weirdly uplifting book, it’s quite possible to be funny about death without tipping too far into flippancy… [This book] is a small victory for a different view of death, in its own quirky way. — Mail on Sunday

The book is packed with such stories, about the great and the good, as well as those you’ve never heard of, but are glad you now have. — The Spectator

Treneman was planning to leave the 100th entry empty for readers to come up with their own favourite grave but then she discovered Fred Wolseley. Like the ninety-nine other entries, it tells you much that you did not know, in an amusing and charming way. –Times Literary Supplement

This unusual guidebook is essential for anyone with a fascination for final resting places. — Discover Britain

A witty and highly entertaining guide. –Good Book Guide
