This small gallery gives an overview of graves and related sub-categories. For each, there is a description here and and at least one example reference picture.

This page is meant to help users categorizing images of graves. The categorization scheme 'Grave (place of interment)' gives documentation for Category: Graves and its sub-categories.

A grave is any repository for the remains of the dead.

Graves by type[edit]

There are two basic types of grave: inhumation graves (generally just called 'graves') and tombs.

Graves[edit]

Used in its more specific sense, the word refers to holes dug into the ground for the burial of bodies.

Cist graves[edit]

Stone lined graves, usually in an archaeological context, sometimes for cremations.

Tombs[edit]

Structurally enclosed interment spaces or chambers, of varying sizes. The word is used in a broad sense to encompass a number of such types of places of interment, including mausoleums, prehistoric tombs, sarcophagi, sepulkchres and underground tombs. For details, see the Tombs by type gallery.

Tumuli[edit]

Archaeological burial mounds, can be either a grave or a tomb. For details, see the Tombs by type and Megaliths by type galleries.

Grave markers[edit]

As inhumation graves are, by their very nature, beneath the ground, most images of burial graves are actually of the monuments which mark where the grave lies below. The most common type is a gravestone, generally an inscribed upright (sometimes flat) slab of stone. Others include crosses and sculptures, and the less common obelisks, stars, etc. For details, see the Grave marker gallery.

Burial grounds[edit]

Several graves dug together in a designated area. Images of general landscapes. Images of individual grave markers should only be placed in categories for their specific burial grounds.

Cemeteries[edit]

Very general word for an area of land set aside for burials. Specific types include military cemeteries and pet cemeteries.

Graves by country[edit]

Graves by occupant[edit]

Some graves can be categorized by the rank or otherwise of the person or people within the grave, such as royal graves.
