As I reflect on my family tree, there may be just the one Chickasha cemetery that I can name wherein I know of my family Smith-Sipuel-Huggins/Fisher/Factory members are buried: (oh... Aunt Nan in IL, and Earnystene in TN) and one Illinois and one Mississippi cemetery that I know of my Travis-Morgan-Huggins family members are recorded deaths.
A tomb is a repository for the remains of the dead. It is generally any structurally enclosed interment space or burial chamber, of varying sizes. Tombs are generally located in or under religious buildings, such as churches, or in cemeteries or churchyards
Graves are usually located in special areas set aside for the purpose of burial, such as graveyards or cemeteries.
