Angels Watch Over Us In Death

Grave Concerns

NICOLA CARPENTER is a taphophile – that’s a person who is interested in cemeteries. Today she will begin a regular column for The Spooky Isles about all things cemetery and teach us there is more to memorials to the dead than lumping a bit of stone on top of a buried body.

  1. Nicola, I am so thrilled to make your (albeit) on-line acquaintance. What a fascinating article [bookmarked! ;] I never knew before there was a term for individuals drawn to cemeteries, but I photograph cemeteries on all of my travels and feature cemetery angels in my book trailers. Sign me 'a devoted follower of your column' ~Emily Hill~.

  2. Hi Emily. Thank you so much for your kind comments. I only discovered I was a Taphophile when I got online and discovered, to my joy, that there were others like me that loved cemeteries.
