The cemetery has been divided up into sections of 25 graves, each section forming a chapter. A map and contents of each section is included. Each grave is carefully photographed, along with its inscription where extant. Each inscription is painstakingly transcribed and information about the person or persons interred has been thoroughly researched by the author, Marcus Langdon. Biographical details are included for the majority of the decipherable tombstones. Many additional images are included; both historical and family-related, making this the definitive guide to the cemetery and a magnificent tribute to those interred. Being a very limited edition with only 550 copies produced, this will surely become a sought-after collector’s item.
