There're several different words meaning "to bury a person". I'd like to ask you whether they're all interchangeable or have some differences. Below I've provided some examples to make it clearer what I'm saying:
1) Peter the Great was committed to the ground in the Peter and Paul Cathedral in Saint-Petersburg in 1725
2) Prince Alexis, Peter's son, was inhumed in the cathedral after he was strangled in one of the cells of the Peter and Paul fortress
3) Empress Maria was originally buried in Copenhagen, but later, in 2006, she was interred in St.Petersburg
Do all these words/expressions mean the same or there is a difference between them?
While it's a logical opposite of "exhumed," I have never seen "inhumed" before. "Interred" would be the normal word I have seen used.
I can never hear interred without reciting in my head this limerick:
There was a young fellow from Ryde
Who fell down a sewer and died.
He'd also a brother
Who fell down another,
And now they're interred side by side.
