Rationale

The present proposal is an offshoot of the - now approved - proposal for amenity=funeral_hall.

While the tag amenity=funeral_hall is for a place for holding a funeral ceremony, other than a place of worship, it was suggested in the description there not to use that tag if the room is clearly ancillary to either a shop=funeral_directors or an amenity=crematorium. Nevertheless, during the discussion there, it emerged that subtags would be useful for such shops/amenities, to indicate whether they have a room for funeral ceremonies or not.

In the discussion here, on the other hand, the point was made that it can still make sense to map the funeral hall apart (e.g. when its location within the premises is known), but there can be cases where this is not practical.

This leads to the reformulation of the proposal as seen below:

Proposal

It is proposed to use a subtag with the key funeral_hall=* whenever it isn't practical or seems inadequate to map a funeral hall apart from the main feature (such as a crematorium or funeral directors shop) to which it is linked.

This would result in the following combinations:
shop=funeral_directors
funeral_hall=yes/no
and
amenity=crematorium
funeral_hall=yes/no

In other words, the proposal is to simply have a flag at our disposal that can be added to the main feature if necessary, without in any way affecting the possibility to map the funeral hall apart instead.

What this proposal is not

The present proposal does not

  • discourage the distinct mapping of a funeral hall, whenever it seems feasible and approprate to the mapper,
  • prejudge (be it positively or negatively) any other future use of the tag.
