Be careful with these generalisations. This might be true for North
America, but it is not true in the UK, for example, where
cemeteries/burial grounds are historically attached to the village
church, at the heart of the settlement. 

Beware also the quest for the universal solution. Postal addressing,
administrative segmentation and people's affinities are separate
dimensions. Any attempt to force them into a single model is doomed to
failure, so why try?
