Tales of a Gravedigger Vol 1

Ian Shipley Stamford House Publishing

Out of Print but hopefully reprint due 2015 along with the NEW Vol 3 - expected soon :)

This first book by Ian Shipley is a fascinating collection of tales recalled from over 20 years hand-digging graves. He has, to date, dug over 2,700 (in over 50 cemeteries across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire). It is a light-hearted and occasionally amusing look into the life of a gravedigger. from coffins getting stuck, exhumations and practical jokes to various other ghostly goings-on.
