Status: in use

A building erected for the purpose of holding funerals, e.g. on a cemetery or next to a crematorium. It typically provides a place to present the deceased, space for the mourners to participate and a facility to give speeches to them.

The tag is particularly useful for such buildings without religious context.

How to map

Draw as an area along the building outline. In cases where it is impossible one may use a node instead.

Tag it with building=funeral_hall.

Tags used in combination


When facilities for the same purpose that have a more specific or a different building type, that should be applied.
E.g. a building erected as a chapel would be tagged building=chapel even if it used nowadays also for non-religious ceremonies.
