This is such a cool site.  You can learn about the poet, and you can see their graves.  Very well designed site with lots and lots of information.

Wow, Tima.  Great find!  I bookmarked it.
quote:
Edmund Spenser is buried in 'Poets' Corner', Westminster Abbey, London. (See map...ref. no  17)

It is reported that his funeral was attended by Jonson, Beaumont,  Fletcher and Shakespeare. Apparently they all wrote elegies for Spenser which they threw into the grave along with their pens.

The exact location of his grave is not known but in 1938 the nearest grave to his memorial was opened in the hope of finding the pens and elegies, but unfortunately all that was discovered was a collapsed lead coffin surrounded by dry soil.
The nerve!  My poor Spenser!

I got it, thanks Tima, I have this sick fascination with wanting to visit graves of poets, writers and musicians . . .
