“The life-stories were well chosen, a good mix of sad, funny and plain weird. It was a fine example of public engagement.” @WorldOfWatters
‘The tour is so well researched and intriguing – Sam and Sheldon give gravitas to every story, talking about every woman and every man with honesty and respect. The Cemetery Club tours are a public service!’ – @drcarpineti
‘Sam and Sheldon were able to tell us interesting life stories of many of the notable people buried there and despite it being such a large group, kept us all enthralled. A very good tour that I would highly recommend.’ @LeighFStanford
“I have always loved being told stories, and discovering stories to share with others – and Sheldon is an excellent storyteller. As we followed Sheldon through the woodland, skipping between decades, it felt like we were travelling through time.” Rachel Belward
