    Grave and Cemetry

    Could you please tell me the differences between them?

    What I guess is "cemetery" refers to whole area where corps are burned/cremated.
    And "grave" is just the deep hole where the coffin is put.

    A cemetary is made up of many grave sites. Or, you can say that there are many graves in the cemetary.

    And yes, a grave is basically a big hole into which the coffin is placed, and then covered up again.

    A cemetary is not the place where bodies are cremated. That is a crematorium. A crematorium may be at the location of a cemetary or somewhere else.

    I am not a teacher.
