Now you're properly terrified. This tour has opened your eyes to the actuality of haunted churches, hotels, restaurants and houses. You need to seek sanctuary someplace and you figure, how many churches could possibly be haunted on one small island? Head over to St. Paul's Chapel.
George Frederick Cooke, a prolific British actor who died of alcoholism in 1812, was buried on the chapel grounds. Not so strange, perhaps, until you consider that he was buried without a head. Cooke donated his skull to science to pay medical bills (a somewhat self-defeating barter), though it supposedly made its way into a stage production of Hamlet. Cooke was laid to rest sans cranium and, according to legend, haunts the chapel and churchyard in search of his noggin.
