The two most commonly seen ghosts are that of a woman in grey often searching around frantically (the common belief is that she’s looking for her children whom she killed) and a robed man who can be viewed from afar, but disappears when viewed too close. Another figure is said to stand behind the cemetery gates and watch passer-bys.
