  1. Graveyard

    A graveyard is any place set aside for long-term burial of the dead, with or without monuments such as headstones. In countries with a Christian tradition it is usually located near and administered by a church. From the early 19th century, new burying grounds were frequently founded as cemeteries, which are burying grounds that are separate from a church or parish.
