I thought this cenotaph cemetery would be an interesting Tombstone Tuesdays post. I don’t expect a lot from the usual cemetery and graving sites and put those sites separately under the No listing located for the below websites
On Sunday, I was looking at YouTube videos and came across Granite, Oklahoma Cemetery & The Funniest Graves In America? – YouTube Video. Original YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0e–2Aw_-0. What is a cenotaph?
I was not familiar with the term “cenotaph” until I read its definition. Not exactly the best definition – https://www.dictionary.com/browse/cenotapha sepulchral monument erected in memory of a deceased person whose body is buried elsewhere.
An easier definition of cenotaph is a headstone or monument for someone who isn’t buried (including inurnment, scattering of ashes, entombment, etc.) next to the headstone or monument. Often, they are not in the same cemetery.
