There's a lot of social history to be seen in a cemetery.I always take the opportunity for a stroll.My favourites have been the Novodevichy in Moscow and Montmartre in Paris.I recorded one message in Wigan Cemetery which read of a deceased 5 year old in 1886 "For I was my fathers only tender daughter and beloved in the eyes of my mother"Words can be so beautiful.
