Featuring the graves of famous magicians and a few other celebrities. Death is an emotional issue and I make every effort to treat this topic with the respect it deserves. I do think we as magicians, have a duty to honor those who came before us and pay tribute to them. Anyone willing to share information and photos of graves of famous magicians, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
In Piershill Cemetery in Edinburgh Scotland, there is an unusual grave. Buried here is a man and his dog. It's safe to say that it's the only animal buried in this particular cemetery. Sigmund Neuberger, who was known professionally as The Great Lafayette purchased the plot to bury his dog, Beauty. The dog had been a gift from escape artist Harry Houdini. I'm sure even Houdini had no idea just how attached Lafayette would become to his dog. Beauty became Lafayette's best friend and traveling companion. In his home in London, the dog had her own bedroom and bathroom, right next to Lafayette's.
