Description:
Churchyards cemeteries are those located on the property of a church, or in close proximity.
Expanded Description:

For many years churches were the preferred location for burials, and these cemeteries are commonly called churchyards. These are often old and historic with stories to tell of families, and events. They are the resting place of the notables and the unknown.

To qualify for inclusion in this category, the cemetery must clearly be associated with a church and located on the church property, or in close proximity. It may consist of one or two graves, or many.

Cemeteries of historic churches that may have been demolished or moved are also welcome. In order for them to be included, however, there MUST be clear documentation of its status as having belonged to a church. Include as much history as you can, text of historic markers, etc.

Instructions for Posting a Churchyard Cemeteries Waymark:

1. COORDINATES must be obtained by a personal visit to the site and should be taken at the entrance to the church or churchyard.

2. PHOTOS: Please read carefully the photo requirements as they are more extensive than usual. In order to document the status of the cemetery as a churchyard and to add a little more value to this waymark category, the following specific photos are required:

-- A photo showing both the church and the cemetery together

-- A photo showing some identifying name of the church or the cemetery itself

-- A photo showing an over view of the churchyard itself

-- A photo close-up of at least one headstone

NOTE: These are the minimum requirements. If one of these elements is not obtainable, exceptions will be made as long as an explanation is provided. There is some flexibility here as long as the cemetery is well presented. Additional photos of interest are encouraged.

3. DESCRIPTION: Provide as much information and history as possible. Dates, historical significance, current status, etc. Include the text from the headstone picture!

4. WAYMARK NAME FORMAT: The name of the waymark MUST follow this format: Name of Church or Cemetery - City, State/Province If it is not within a city or town, the please use another regional designation such as county, borough - whatever best identifies the location of the church.

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category. If there is a disagreement, try to work it out with the evaluating officer, or appeal to the group leader, but we reserve the right to accept or decline a waymark based on our best judgement.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. Because of our international scope, we also acknowledge ENGLISH as our lingua franca. English will create the highest level of accessibility globally. All waymarks must have at least a short description in ENGLISH. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks, but one of the languages must be English. We have volunteer translators to help.

Relying on software or internet based translators, such as Babylon and Google Translate, may NOT yield accurate translations that are intelligible. Use these only when there is no alternative. Although we do not expect grammatical perfection, a waymark may be declined if there the English language is not understandable.
