Peter Ross' new book is quite literally, as Scots like to say, pure dead brilliant
Ross' accounts are compelling, but without losing the empathy and tact. Like a good tour guide... All [are] told with a hint of nostalgia for the forgotten histories. .
Peter Ross traces remarkable lives as well as forgotten ones, and as always with Peter's journalism, personal stories are the heart of what he writes about.
Fascinating . . . Ross makes a likeably idiosyncratic guide and one finishes the book feeling strangely optimistic about the inevitable.
I have nothing but admiration for his way to winkle out a story from the living as well as paying homage to the dead.
Ross has written [a] lively elegy to Britain's best burial grounds.
