Graveyard can be creepy, but they can also be appealing, peaceful, relaxing and very photogenic. Here's a round up of ethereal and timeless pictures from our wonderful Flickr pool contributors, taken from different cemeteries and graveyards around London, including the 'Magnificent Seven'.

Thanks to the following photographers for use of their photos via Flickr: Edward Simpson, Matt Brown, D1v1d, Sven Loach, helenoftheways, Fiddyone, FreezingFilms, Fred Adams, Torsten Reimer, Gabor Hernadi, Stephanie Sadler and Viramati.

This is a bit cheeky but if you like graveyards I have lots of them on my website and you should check them out. I went to Bunhills this morning it was off the hook. OFF the HOOK.
