could be an option. Not sure thousands or millions of individual graves are sufficiently relevant for wikidata to justify entering there (wikidata has different criteria for inclusion than OpenStreetMap)

not very stable, if the concept is not tagging things in OpenStreetMap and rely only on wikidata, basing this relationship on a coordinate alone seems asking for trouble. Imagine you adjust a node position a few meters and this automatically changes all the properties in which you are interested (but have not tagged them, pulling from wikidata
through spatial relation). For graves having many of them close by is probably the normal case.
