I was thinking the same thing, but I believe the OP may be referring to
chapels located inside cemeteries? eg

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dplace_of_worship may work?

It's talk page refers to
which suggests
amenity <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:amenity>=place_of_worship
religion <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:religion>=multifaith
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:religion%3Dmultifaith>, building

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:building%3Dchapel may work just by
itself as well?
