My partner & I are looking at buying a house near a graveyard. The house is way back on a pleasant oleander lined street with plenty of neighbors. From the house we like you literally walk across a small side yard, across a small lane & thru the oleander & you are standing in the graveyard, He states it would bother most people. I grew up with a graveyard that practically spilled into my grandmother's yard so its not an issue with me. Opinions please Smiley

I voted "no, it doesn't matter". Across from our first apartment was a stonemasonry that built gravestones. They exhibited their works in their front yard, just across the street from us. And next to the stonemasonry was the graveyard of the village. So every time we looked out of the kitchen window we looked on the gravestones.
We didn't mind at all.

Buying a house near a graveyard wouldn't bother me.
Good luck with buying a house! A pretty exciting thing to do! Smiley

It wouldn't bother me, either, especially if it was an older, historic graveyard.

At least you shouldn't have to worry about noisy neighbors.  Wink

Hi Steve.  I once lived across from a churchyard and though it was lovely.  Peaceful, lots of light because there weren't big buildings.  But I always liked churchyards since I was a kid, so I wouldn't find it creepy or anything. 

The only issue I can think of:  is it a place that attracts rowdy young people and their beer? 

Good luck!

I lived next door to one.  I was pleased because I knew the place would always be quiet and green with no traffic or disturbances.

And for my superstitious fears if I even took them seriously, there was an open storm drain that ran between my apartment and the cemetery and as we all know, ghosts can't cross running water.  Grin

It does not seem to bother him to the extent that he wants to put a wet blanket on the idea,
and as previously stated, I have no problem with it.

All that ends well, the house ends up sitting directly on the property line. I told the realtor the deal is off till they fix the problem. We really liked it thought but not enuff ta get inta legal problems.

My grandparents had a viking cemetery, on their farm. For us kids that was a cool thing. Perhaps the view of your cemetary will change as well.

Fortunately for us we were not that far into the negotiations. The property next door is owned by an HOA & we realize the task to get the property line moved is nearly impossible. The realtor is still optimistic that this could be done. We still backed out.

We're not right next to a cemetary, but two houses away from it.  We can see it from our back yard.  Never had any problems.

 Roll Eyes

Zombies don't come from cemetaries.  A zombie doesn't have the physical strength to claw out of the coffin, vault and dirt.

Zomibes tend to come from morgues, hospitals, and places like that, before the brains have been removed.

Which leads me to the fact that zombies DON'T eat brains.  The brain must be intact to activate the zombie.  If a zombie eats a brain, the new corpse can't reanimate because the brain is destroyed.  Zombies eat flesh.

Ok?

Chuck, I saw the original black & white "Night of the Living Dead" (1968) and some zombies came from a cemetary. The freshly dead became  zombies & came right out of the grave to eat flesh. I do remember them pulling the guts outta one person to eat.

I saw that movie too (love it) and yes, the initial attack happened in the cemetary, but you don't see the zombie rise from the grave.  It's assumed the zombie wandered into the cemetary and attacked Johnny & Barbara.

If you look at the background during the movie, none of the graves are dug up/opened.

We interrupt this program: Hacker broadcasts zombie threat on TV

February 11, 2013|Staff reports

Brains! At least one zombie-loving prankster has 'em - along with a macabre sense of humor.

Someone hacked into a Montana emergency alert system Monday and broadcast a bogus message telling viewers that "dead bodies are rising from their graves and attacking the living" in the Great Falls area, Gawker.com and other media outlets reported.

      If you are not the superstitious type, it should be a great plus.  As to the property line, I wouldn't think there would be a person
making a complaint.  The deceased don't seem to have a lot of ligitigations.  It should as the others have said.  Be nice and private,
quiet, and green.  I would think of it being a great plus.  I love to visit cemetaries and read the headstones, and find that the history there is very real and touchable,  rather than a dry read in a book.  The people also become true individuals with everyday lives and
troubles.  I love to go to the pioneer graveyards in Oregon.  I have done so quite a lot.

     It would be a big yea to me...  Good luck with your enterprise..
