Strange coincidence or something more? 


On Tuesday, 15 February 1910, at Caernarfon goal, William Murphy was executed for the murder of Gwen Ellen Jones on Christmas Day 1909. He was the last person to be executed in North Wales. 

After Murphy gave himself up to the police he was tried at Beaumaris Court on the 26 January 1910 and was found guilty within a few minutes by the jury.  

 

On the day of Murphy's execution, the bell of St Mary's Church was tolled as was customary in Caernarfon, but on that day it rang only twice, then silence as the bell clapper broke away and fell to the ground.
