Virtual Tours

Virtual tours and videos are something I have recently started doing due to the restrictions faced because of the Pandemic. Please consider donating to help cover my subscription and research costs whilst I study for my masters!

Beckenham Cemetery (8 part series)

As a result of the Covid-19 restrictions in March, a planned tour around Beckenham Cemetery & Crematorium became digital. Here I explore a pretty suburban cemetery and meet people such as scientists, assassins and hoteliers whilst making use of the tranquility a cemetery .

Queens Road Cemetery, Croydon (5 part series)

Queen’s Road cemetery in Croydon is cut off from the main centre of croydon, but this wasn’t always the case. Adjacent to the borough workhouse, this was, for a time, the only municipal cemetery for the borough and it pained me to see that, unlike its other late Victorian contemporaries, much of its history had been cleared away. Here I find murder mysteries, theatrical entrepreneurs and icons of the British Museum.

Cemetery Shorts

A series of stories from a variety of cemeteries. The Human Almanac, The Diary of Nathaniel Bryceson, aged 19½ and a tragedy in Stroud workhouse…

Hampstead Cemetery

Hampstead Cemetery is one of my favourites: opened in response to the realisation that the ‘Magnificent Seven’ ring of cemeteries around London were not enough to deal with London’s dead, much like Beckenham and Queen’s Road, Croydon . Here I take Charlotte from A Peace in London around a few of my favourite graves.

  1. Just been on ‘The Wonder Women of Hampstead Cemetary’ tour. A great afternoon! Interesting, informative and sometimes plain astonishing, Sheldon really paints such vivid pictures of their lives. He had such passion and humanity. Highly Recommended. Can’t wait to do another tour.
