The Victorian Undertaker and The Victorian Cemetery

These two books came from Highgate Cemetery. I was intrigued to find books on such subjects. Then again at some point I wanted to be a mortician when I grew up. The books are insightful and make you wonder what life was like back then. In the Victoria era death... or funerals were such rituals and sometimes pageantry was not reserved for the wealth of kings or queens. There was protocol which lent to the meticulous details and  the method of mourning. Interesting! - JW
