Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/1139983373 Details in Note. I’m on the other side of the world, so my outline is guessing from the aerials. I discovered this place while researching genealogies—I had an ancestor baptized in that church. Maybe someone lives close enough to visit with a GPS to move/add nodes (corners)?

I added a sentence, but save failed: Maybe someone lives close enough to visit with GPS and put nodes/corners in the right places?

I think it's more common to tag burial areas as graveyards if they are right next to churches, but this may vary by region. You might have better luck contacting someone with local knowledge on the relevant regional subform in https://community.openstreetmap.org/ .

Approximate boundaries normally aren't a problem as long as they are reasonably correct. As another remote mapper the only issue I can think of would be if the map you mention might not be out of copyright yet.

The map was prepared before WW2 by Germany.  "Confiscated by the Allies" and reprinted by Britain with legend and other info around the outside in English, French, and German. Found the map researching my genealogy, but the boundaries are solely based on aerial image in the iPad app I use for editing. The map makes it look like the graveyard completely surrounds the church, but the aerial shows only one "might be" grave in the otherwise smooth south lawn.
