It was April and the blackbirds sang :). The weather was nice but windy and cloudy. There is quite cold by the sea, although there were even 12 degrees celsius.

Went here to see the grave of local artist Alfred Wallis . I found the grave yard to be a bit untidy but this is like most graveyards now .

This oasis overlooking the famous surf beach Porthmeor, give time for reflection, there are seats where one can sit and look out over the sea, or wander around this lovely cemetary one can find interesting graves of many local people

I was drawn to look at the cemetery as there are often interesting old stones to look at in these places. What I was not expecting was the number of amazing butterflies around the place. It is a little nature reserve - lovely

Not sure this should be labelled as a tourist attraction - it is a cemetery where people are still being buried. But it is in the most fabulous location with wonderful views.

Walked through this lovely Cemetery on the way to Clodgy View Terrace, this is a very old Cemetery and although on a steep slope it is built on terraces, making it easier to walk around. A wonderful view from every aspect in this Cemetery, well...More

Wow! What a location for your final resting place. Up high in a cliff overlooking the beautiful white sands and turquoise seas. I don't think it is possible to find a better cemetery view

Hi, the grave is on the lower level of the cemetery, coming from the Tate, not far from the chapel, sorry I cant be more precise.
