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

A: Ours was created to acknowledge VINTAGE mausoleums and vaults, primarily late 1800s, early 1900s. There are other mausoleum groups, but most of them include the huge mausoleums or modern-day mausoleums.

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

A: We don’t have an actual written policy about what is appropriate, but we won’t tolerate photos or posts that are disrespectful to the dead in any way.

Q: How old is your group?

A. We were established in 2011.

Q: Is your group open to new members?

A. Yes, we are open to new members. There are no criteria, other than a love for vintage mausoleums and vaults.

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

A. I belong to 33 cemetery groups and have “liked” many other pages. Cemeteries are definitely my passion!

    Interesting! I’m barely on Facebook – maybe 5 minutes per week. But, I didn’t know there were groups like this. Good to know. :)
