Welcome to Burials and Beyond, a light-hearted, personal blog about ‘life, death and the weird bits in-between.’
I’m Kate Cherrell, a British enthusiast of cemeteries, mourning traditions, spiritualism, the paranormal and the gothic! In short, I’m a professional morbid sod.
When I’m not knee-deep in writing, I can usually be found conducting fun, deathly public lectures, assisting at Arnos Vale Cemetery and eating too many biscuits.
Burials and Beyond is primarily a personal passion-project; an outlet for me to explore and record my interests in death, memorial, superstition and odd folklore. Subsequently, the content here is very varied, but is all categorised under the same odd and gloomy umbrella.
This blog is not an extension of my academic work, nor should it be read as such; hey, we all need a hobby! If you are interested in academic sites concerning death, memorials, the supernatural etc. or simply want to explore the work of other writers, I endeavour to keep an updated list of recommended blogs and resources on the More Content tab.
