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.

How to map

Draw the outline of the area area which will include the graves, footways, service roads and even inner green spaces as it is very likely that they will be used for future graves. Do not include the nearby parking areas.
