Peter Ross' new book is quite literally, as Scots like to say, pure dead brilliant
Ross' accounts are compelling, but without losing the empathy and tact. Like a good tour guide... All [are] told with a hint of nostalgia for the forgotten histories
Peter Ross traces remarkable lives as well as forgotten ones, and as always with Peter's journalism, personal stories are the heart of what he writes about.
Fascinating . . . Ross makes a likeably idiosyncratic guide and one finishes the book feeling strangely optimistic about the inevitable.
I have nothing but admiration for his way to winkle out a story from the living as well as paying homage to the dead.
Ross has written [a] lively elegy to Britain's best burial grounds.

An informative, playful work stuffed full of memorable stories
A Tomb with a View... is beautifully written, full of humanity and his great stories are told with understated flair.
A Tomb With A View is a book for everyone - one that will make you laugh, cry, think, feel, and reflect on your own life and the lives of others
It is not too fanciful to talk of the soul of A Tomb With A View. It is replete with stories but it echoes with something profound.
Ross has brought an evocative touch
Funny and warm-hearted
The pages burst with life and anecdote while also examining our relationship with remembrance.
Beautifully written and strangely life affirming.
