A Tribute to

John Cave M.B.E


John taking video film of the presentation day in Thomas Ellis school in June 2017.


On Friday 15th June 2018 the Holyhead Maritime Museum made a statement which shocked and saddened the people of Holyhead to the core. The statement read It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our President and great friend Mr. John Cave MBE. It was his commitment and enthusiasm that established the Maritime Museum over 30 years ago. His contribution to the community of Holyhead is immeasurable. He will be greatly missed by all at the museum, his many friends and throughout the town. Our heartfelt condolences to his wife Margaret, daughter Sue and family".

Mr. Richard Burnell. This photo was taken in Thomas Ellis School in June 2017 when Richard and John took photos and video on presentation day when the school was closing

Former Vice President of Holyhead's Maritime Museum in Newry beach, Mr Richard Burnell has also paid great tributes to his best friend in the local newspapers and social media. He has also been generous posting photos of John on Facebook for us all to see. Richard and John were very often seen in and around Holyhead speaking to people and taking photographs.
John was involved in many of Holyhead's organisations. Amongst which was the Sea Cadets Unit in Newry beach of which he was a long term member. He was a committee member there and a trainer.
In the 1960s John has been a lifeboat crewman and had kept in contact with the station ever since.
John was a real gentle - man, who was loved and respected by everyone in Holyhead. He had a great sense of humour and a gentle voice. He made everyone who spoke to him feel special. He was a caring, warm man, who will be remembered for many many years by all those who knew him.
Our sincere condolences go to Johns family and to his friends. He will be sadly missed by the people of Holyhead whom I am sure will be talking about our very own Mr Holyhead for many years to come.


In Newry beach Holyhead the Maritime Museum's flag is seen here flying at half mast as a mark of respect to John Cave MBE - June 2018
