Mission Statement: “This group is for unusual, humorous, strange, mystifying, and tasteless finds in our cemeteries. We do not make fun of people or the dead; we are simply having fun with life’s little oddities (that just happen to be in cemeteries). If you’re easily offended, this is probably not the group for you. Please post only CEMETERY finds. There are other groups out there for all the other strange death-related stuff.”

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

A: I think people like to see odd things, so the Cemetery Oddities group has more members than any other group I have.

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

A: The mission statement sums it up.

Q: How old is your group?

A: Just over a year old.

Q: Is your group open to new members?

Q: Anyone can join as long as they don’t spam. If they try to sell shoes, they will be blocked.

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

A: Many. I join any cemetery group I can find!
