I confess that I do have a favourite cemetery in Cambridge (The Ascension Burial Ground, up Huntingdon Road, just opposite my house). But I now have a close running second -- The Mill Road Cemetery, on the other side of town. Until today, I hadn't been there for gettimg on for 40 years (and I suspect that the last time I visited with a bloke who had a room nearby, it was to do something on the border between the naughtly and the illegal...).
Amyway, I went today to see a wonderful performance of monologues by the students from the Parkside Federation that related to the graves commemorating WW1 casualties. It was a really tremendous way to skive off marking (though actually I was caught out by meeting one of my PhD students whose thesis I should also have been reading -- she was there to watch her daughter perform). The Parkside kids, together with some local residents, had investigated (and in some cases cleared) the graves of the men who had fallen in WW1and they were there to tell some of the stories (with the help of some inspired scripting from their teacher, Kay Blayney).
