Long DescriptionThe cemeteries of Greater London have been a neglected area of the capital's history. They are filled not only with the remains of recent generations but also with a wealth of architectural and social history that is described here in an entertaining and eloquent narrative full of picturesque melancholy. Part one of this study records the origins of London's cemeteries and includes introductory chapters on cemetery history, planning, architecture, epitaphs, and natural history. Part Two is a gazetteer with descriptions of all the cemeteries in Greater London, together with short biographies of the celebrated people buried in them. There are two indexes, one listing the names of those in the gazetteer, and a second naming the architects, landscapers, and sculptors whose work is represented in the cemeteries. The text is illustrated throughout with contemporary photographs and a wide range of rarely seen archive images. This is an important source for biographical and genealogical research, and a compendium of material for the architectural historian. Social and local historians will also find much of interest here.

Article of interest

For a couple months, we have been working on a major revamp of the database. All the existing data will be saved of course but many new data elements will be created.

People have been asking for the ability to track nutritional information, ingredients and other data items related to various products.

To this point, we have not been able to track that information because of a limit imposed by the database layout. Adding these new fields would be very hard.

We have finally gotten the database into the correct shape for the new fields and many many more in the future. We will be able to track just about any type of data item for any given product type.

It may be a few more months before the input screens catch up to the database changes. We want the user interface to be smooth and easy to use. Using feedback we have already received about the current site we will be making changes to the input process.

We also need to take into account the existing applications that are using the existing data feed and we will also need to create a new updated data feed for people moving forward.

In short, big changes are coming now that the database has been revamped but all the existing functions will continue to work without interuption.
