Victorian Gardens of rest

A broad pathway at Tomnahurich

The Victorians planned many wonderful garden cemeteries that cleared away the horrors of the cemetery as described by Edwin Chadwick and the Sexton in "Dealings with the Dead".  Tomnahurich near Inverness is a wonderful Scottish example of this sort of Garden Cemetery. My thanks for the photographs.
