Spooky Cemetery: Vlieland

One might find it a bit morbid, but I have a fascination for old graveyards. While visiting the island Vlieland, I came across this one. It has a nice mixture of very old grave and ones that are fairly recent.

When I talked to one of the locals, he told me that the cemetery is full at the moment. There’s hardly any room for new bodies. Even on a small island like Vlieland, with a population of about 1,100 people, that can be problematic.

Grave of Christian Mathiesen Schmidt, captain of the Delphine that stranded on the Vliehors on December 4th, 1863.
