In the heart of Belfast City lies Milltown Cemetery – a graveyard which has serviced the Catholic population of the city for almost 150 years.
Within its grounds lies a wealth of fascinating individuals – from actors and artists to political activists. Home Rulers, nationalists, republicans and British Army soldiers all lie at peace together. This is their story.
Historian Tom Hartley takes the reader on a journey through Milltown Cemetery, examining the lives of the people buried there and, through them, telling the complex story of the city of Belfast population.
