Alexandra Kathryn Mosca
Invites you in....
Alexandra Kathryn Mosca has had a long and noteworthy career in funeral service. Over the years, she has branched out into acting, modeling and writing. Today, hers is one of the most recognized names in the funeral industry. She has become a role model for the many women looking to forge a career in funeral service and for them, her memoir -- Grave Undertakings -- is a "must read."
While many have tried to emulate Alexandra over the years, she remains an original, continuing to inspire through example and to chronicle the industry in her articles.
Meshing her career as a funeral director with her love of history, Alexandra's second book about one of America's most famous cemeteries--Green-Wood Cemetery-- led her to explore more and more about noted cemeteries. That research led to her blog --Gardens of Stone-- which contains photographs from some of America's most famous cemeteries, along with historical tidbits about the lives and deaths of their inhabitants.

Alexandra researches and writes about historic cemeteries, their notable inhabitants, mortuary architecture and famous funerals. Over the years, she has profiled a number of historic cemeteries: New York's Green-Wood, Ferncliff, Gate of Heaven, Salem Fields and Atlanta's Oakland, among them.
