** Justified in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' where tombs for Vvardenfell's wealthier Dunmer families dot the island, typically guarded by by summoned spirits and the reanimated dead. (The Dunmer consider this a holy act and very different from blasphemous [according to the [[CorruptChurch Tribunal Temple]]] necromancy.) And of course, some of the tombs have been taken over by even worse creatures...

* Subverted in the Literature/VillageTales series. Dukes and their baronial predecessors as well as poachers and farm laborers are buried decently in the churchyard, and all the memorial tablets and brasses and such are in the parish churches. There ''are'' plenty of barrows and ancient tombs dotting the landscapes c'mon, it's ''Wiltshire'' but these are objects of very little legend and of intense, mundane, scientific, properly conducted archaeological interest. As Professor Farnaby, Professor the Baroness Lacy, and their team will tell you between digs.

* In ''[[{{Literature/Kane}} Darkness Weaves]]'' Kane's hiding place is an old burial cavern on the side of a mountain full of such tombs. These became abandoned because of a new religion that introduces cremation and since they are believed to be ghoul-infested (not without reason), it is a perfect hiding place.

* The Crypt of Winterfell in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', catacombs under the castle in which the kings and lords of Stark are entombed and their likenesses set in stone. Traditionally it's just for the lords and kings, but Ned Stark took to entombing his brothers and sisters as well. The deepest depths of the crypts have not been detailed as of yet, and are the stuff of some legend (including the rumor that a Targaryen dragon once found its way down there and left a nest of eggs).
