Hundreds of generations of Londoners lie beneath the city; hidden and forgotten, until now. Their burial grounds have been developed, built upon, grassed over and razed from history. Many have been disturbed by railways, tunnels and modern buildings. Plague and burial pits still come to light. Robert Bard has found and described many of these forgotten places. Some became public gardens; others were covered and forgotten. The work emphasizes the local history of graveyards, touches on the customs and logistics of burial, and the squalor of many burial grounds in the 18th and 19th centuries and the reforms.
