Hello! I’m the Cemetery Chick and I’m a taphophile. (At this point, I am going to imagine you saying, “Hello, Cemetery Chick!”) Being a taphophile means I really like cemeteries. Always have, and no, I don’t know why. Because they’re green and peaceful? Quiet? Good places to take a stroll or be alone with your thoughts? All of the above?
Maybe it’s best not to ask too many questions,
In this blog, I will be sharing some of my enthusiasm for cemeteries, some photos my husband and I have taken, and random cemetery-related things I find interesting. You never know what you’ll find when you enter a cemetery.
For instance, in 2011, we took an afternoon to go to the Garden Museum in London, which is located in the old St. Mary-at-Lambeth church. After viewing the museum, we got some refreshments, sat out in the churchyard among the headstones, and discovered we were having tea in the shadow of the sarcophagus of Captain Bligh. You know, Mutiny on the Bounty Captain Bligh. That’s London for you.
