Mission Statement: A place to share photos, stories, articles, and all things related to cemeteries, gravestones, etc.

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

A: Well, ours covers a wide range of all cemetery-related topics.

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

A: We keep it as wide open as possible for all people to share and express what they want. We don’t have a policy about what to post. We don’t limit what people can post.

I belong to a couple of other groups, too. Most of them focus on photography of gravestones. This group is not just about photography, but is full of conservators giving advice on how to fix gravestones, some interesting articles, any new laws that come into effect, etc. Anything and everything cemetery- or death-related is posted and shared.

Q: How old is your group?

A: Our group is probably about a year old at this point and it is still growing.

Q: Is your group open to new members?

A: We are definitely open to new members and there are no criteria for them to join. They just ask to join and they get accepted (as long as they are real and don’t spam it with sunglass or sneaker sales. LOL!)
