A LITTLE PIECE OF HISTORY IN ST IVES
Sep 2021
Peacefull and tranquil place ,very pleasing on the eye. I know it's a cemetery, but walking up the hill back to our uninviting apartment from porthmeor beach ,we decided to detour and try to find the grave of ALBERT WALLIS. After all we were staying in an apartment named after him .and we had found the house he once lived in.Succes 2out of 2.We just wish we had not had the same luck when booking the apartment through CARBIS BAY HOLIDAYS,now part of SYKES COTTAGES. If Albert was still alive, I think he would have declined the offer of a bedroom in this apartment because there were only four hooks on the bedroom wall to hang any clothes and we were using them,These were classed as hanging area.No Wardrobe No Consideration Neil A

Beautiful place to rest in eternity…

What a beautiful place to spend the rest of eternity!
Spectacular views from the cemetery over the Porthmeor beach & beyond. The two identical “Chapel of Rest” buildings appear to be owned by a funeral directors now but you are free to wander around the graveyard & look at some of the old headstones.

Peaceful Location.
Sep 2020 • Couples
As previously mentioned I’m not sure either why this is a TA location to visit, a church most probably ‘yes’, but a church yard, probably not, unless there is something outstanding about it.
The family and friends of those buried here may well like the views, but it’s a shame that the grassed areas are not being maintained. Easy to reach from Barnoon car park or from the Tate Gallery.
Don’t go out of your way to visit here!

Cemetery with a view

Next to a busy car park which is a bit of a shame but the old headstones are quite interesting of you're into that kind of thing.

At peace while at peace

What a beautiful final resting place with a lookout over the bay. Not sure how a cemetery can really attract a 'review' on Trip Advisor but the place just afforded such a beautiful view. Something very peaceful about the place.

Great position
Sep 2019
This is in a beautiful position just above the bay. We managed to find Alfred Wallis' grave. The cemetery looks a little bit unkempt which is a pity but still worth a visit if you are in St Ives.

RIP with an amazing view

Went here to find Alfred Wallis grave. I love his naive paintings and think he got a raw deal from the art world in his lifetime. Lovely grave covered with tiles from the Leach Pottery, worth a look.

A quiet place in a busy summer resort
Aug 2019
If you can't find a quiet corner and need a moment of peace in St. Ives, this is the place for you. Beautifully kept, peaceful and with glorious views of blue sky and glimpses of the sea.

Beautiful enigmatic setting

There is so much history here but the location is really the outstanding part. The views from the cemetery are stunning and such be tried at different times of the day and night.

Very beautiful and peaceful
Aug 2019 • Solo
A very peaceful place with a beautiful view of Porthmeor Beach.

It was very interesting the headstones and of some of the people buried here.

Some were Master Mariners, where others had served in the wars, especially one of Mary Gyles Andrews whom served in the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force.

The surname ‘Carbines’ featured very heavily here so presumably this family name is heavily associated with St. Ives.

The beautiful gravestone of the late Artist, Alfred Wallis, was also lovely to look at.
