tomb=cenotaph sounds perfect, if unusual.

is the cenotaph that I was mapping when the question arose. Baron von
Steuben's remains are in an unmarked grave somewhere nearby. The 'memorial
tomb' was erected, contrary to his express wish to be buried in an unmarked
grave, decades after his death. It is claimed, but by no means certain,
that the memorial covers his remains. He is most certainly not entombed
within it.
