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 is worth a look around if you are nearby. Lots of war heroes laid to rest here and whilst you are looking there are tremendous views out to sea.

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.

Hi Roger. I visited the cemetery this week and have posted some photos that may be of interest to you. Not only William Veal, but also a few other Veals who may well be related. The cross is by no means the tallest, though... More

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.
