Q: There are a lot of cemetery aficionado groups on Facebook. What sets yours apart?

A: I’m trying to promote the artistic beauty and the peace that goes along with visiting our nation’s cemeteries.

Q: Do you have a policy about what is appropriate to post?

A: Most people are creeped out when it comes to cemeteries, so I want to show that there is nothing creepy or weird about cemetery photography. It’s been kinda slow lately, so I’m encouraging more people to get out there with their cameras and start snapping those pictures. I am trying to get more posts of cemeteries from around the country and around the world.

Q: How old is your group?

A: My group is a little over two years old.

Q: Is your group open to new members?

A: My group is always open to new members. The only criteria are a passion for cemeteries and you have to be an actual person, not some spam-spreader.

Q: Are you a member of any other cemetery groups?

A. I am the creator of Cemetery Humor, and a member of both Graves of the Rich and Famous, and Findagrave.
