It might help to explain in a bit more detail what you mean. Burial customs vary hugely around the world. An equivalent in the UK would be shop=funeral_directors, but they don't sell a "tomb" - the arrange everything associated with a funeral (incuding a graveyard plot).

Is this the sort of thing you mean, or are you thinking of something else?

The shop i mean just sells tombs nothing else, its common in Germany, shop=funeral_directors is "Bestatter" I think.

I guess you mean a place making gravestones (Grabmale). You could use craft=stonemason for that. Maybe qualify it with stonemason=gravestones (to the native speakers: what's the best BE term?).

Yeah thats right, I thought it would mean the same. I will tag it like this, thanks for the help. What do you mean with BE term?

BE = British English, language of OSM. I'm not sure what is most common: gravestone, tombstone, headstone, ...?

craft=stonemason does get used for this sort of thing, for example here.
I've used shop=gravestone for that sort of thing to distinguish it from an actual stonemason such as here.

The normal term in en-gb for this craft is monumental mason.

As these guys usually not just sell the stones but customize them (engrave names and dates and such) I would prefer craft over shop.
