A grave is a place dug into the ground for the burial of a corpse, often marked with a gravestone. In areas where grave location/inscription is considered private information[1], please map only significant and notable graves.

How to map

Place a node node in the middle of the grave or map the outline area of the grave.

Add cemetery=grave and name=* (adding the name of the dead in the name=* tag is common practice)

inscription=* is a standard tag for recording text written on an object.

Add additional details in a description=* tag.
