The World's Most Beautiful Cemeteries

I recently came across a wonderful travel article by Bruce Holmes about 10 of the world's most beautiful cemeteries. When I began reading it, I immediately thought of Waverley Cemetery in Sydney's eastern suburbs, and sure enough it came in at Number 9. Waverley Cemetery has spectacular ocean views from its cliff-top position, which many consider wasted on its 'residents'. The article notes that the funeral scenes from Baz Luhrmann's film The Great Gatsby (to be released in 2013) were shot at Waverley Cemetery.
If you are into family history, then you will be fascinated by these beautiful cemeteries from arounf the world and all the information they contain.
