Caernarfon and a lack of respect for it's dead

While on holiday in Snowdonia we visited Llanbeblig Caernarfon Cemetery and it has to be the worst cemetery i have ever seen. Such a lack of respect for the dead is shown and it seems to be the local hangout for drunks and druggies.One male and 2 young females were sitting on the graves around the back of the church while we went around taking photographs. Your life must be quite dismal or just downright pathetic  if this is the only thing you can think of doing on a Friday afternoon. In a way it's quite apt actually, seeing as they are probably going to be 6ft under if they keep up their hobby. One can only hope.

This place also shows how useless Caernarfon council / Mayor is, paying for stupid shows and events to be held while letting their dead rot in a place of utter disgust. One grave of three children all under 14 was broken, overgrown and covered in beer bottles and it was upsetting to see. There are also war graves there, all forgotten about and among the debris.

  1. This is horrendous!

    I recently interred my father just down the road in Llanllyfni cemetery, which is a stark contrast to this, which is odd as I'd have thought both would be run by the same council.

  2. Firstly i'm very sorry about your father. x

    This cemetery is very sad to see. I never thought there would be a time when people just didn't care about their dead anymore. It shouldn't matter if they have been dead 10 years or 1000 years.

  3. That's an outrage. No respect for the dead.
