This tag is used for a cemetery that isn't close to a place of worship. In most (European) countries, there is a difference between amenity=grave_yard and landuse=cemetery. Cemeteries are usually independent of places of worship (e.g. military cemeteries), while grave yards are usually the yard of a place of worship.
