This is not clear in the proposal. It's much more than graves.
Birthday, family, description, etc. If you check examples, it is
reused to add every details of a person live (memorial, named streets)

This is another question but not about this relation. We have to be
careful about creating a database of named people (and their
relationship) when they are not celebrities. Even for dead people, it
can be conditioned to local legislation.
