Douglas Adams
Douglas Adams
Headstone for the ashes of satirical humorist genius Douglas Adams, creator of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" radio series, trilogy of five books and later television dramatisations.
The accompanying number 42 is of course 'the answer to life, the universe and everything' and the pot of ballpoint pens refers to 'Somewhere in the cosmos, he said, along with all the planets inhabited by humanoids, reptiloids, fishoids, walking treeoids and superintelligent shades of the colour blue, there was also a planet entirely given over to ballpoint life forms. And it was to this planet that unattended ballpoints would make their way, slipping away quietly through wormholes in space to a world where they knew they could enjoy a uniquely ballpointoid lifestyle, responding to highly ballpoint-oriented stimuli, and generally leading the ballpoint equivalent of the good life'

So long and thanks for all the fish
Highgate Cemetery
Highgate Cemetery is a place of burial in north London. It is designated Grade I on the Historic England Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England. It is divided into two parts, named the East and West cemetery. There are approximately 170,000 people buried in around 53,000 graves at Highgate Cemetery. The cemetery opened in 1839. Notable burials include Karl Marx, Michael Faraday, Jacob Bronowski & Douglas Adams. Access to the western cemetery is by guided tour only, the eastern cemetery has an entrance fee (surely this would have Marx spinning in his grave!).
