Person Of Interest
A Fine And Private Place by Peter S. Beagle

Jonathan Rebeck has lived in the Bronx's Yorkchester Cemetery for nearly 20 yrs. hiding from the real world, his only friends a talking raven who brings him food and the newly arriving ghosts he helps to fade from the graveyard and move on. The story centers on our search for love and the nature and meaning of life and death.
Murder by Death
Added, thanks!
Ani's Book Abyss
I have not read it yet, but this book is on my TBR, just not for Bingo and I've been told by a friend that it's quite good: Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris (ISBN: 9780425212899).
Murder by Death
Yes, it does, thanks. Added.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
"The Grave Tattoo" and "A Grave Mistake" would also qualify for "Genre: Mystery" (as well as, arguably, "Dark and Stormy Night").

"The Body Snatcher" would likewise qualify for "Dark and Stormy Night," as well as probably "Gothic" and, like (of course) "The Cask of Amontillado" (and everything else by Poe) for "Genre: Horror" and "Classic Horror."
Murder by Death
Updated - thanks. I was starting to get lax with the notes last night (too many books!!!). I've updated these.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Another one (for this list as well as "Genre: Horror" and "Dark and Stormy Night") -- Stephen King: "Pet Samatary" (ISBN 13: 9781416524342; ISBN 10: 1416524347).
Murder by Death
Added.
SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady
Grave Peril, by Jim Butcher. (Note: #3 in Dresden series.)

No Graves As Yet, by Anne Perry. First volume of a mystery series set in WW1.

An Unmarked Grave, by Charles Todd. (Note: #4 in Bess Crawford series.)
Murder by Death
Added, thanks!
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Nonfiction (concerned with the discovery of royal bones, no less):
Michael Jones / Philippa Langley: "The King's Grave: The Discovery of Richard III's Lost Burial Place and the Clues It Holds" (ISBN 13: 9781250044105; ISBN 10:1250044103)
Edoardo Albert / Katie Tucker: "In Search of Alfred the Great: The King, The Grave, The Legend" (ISBN 13: 9781445649641; ISBN 10: 1445649640)

More nonfiction, though decidedly more gruesome and not a shred of nobility in sight:
Clea Koff: "The Bone Woman" (ISBN13: 9780812968859; ISBN 10: 0812968859)

On the fictional side, most of the Temperance Brennan books by Kathy Reichs would qualify; "Grave Secrets" (ISBN 10: 0671028383; ISBN 13: 9780671028381) actually has the word "grave" in its title.

More mysteries:
Ian Rankin: "Standing in Another Man's Grave" (ISBN 13: 9781409109419; ISBN 10: 1409109410)
Arnaldur Indriðason: "Silence of the Grave" (ISBN 13: 9780099548553; ISBN 10: 0099548550)
Barbara Hambly: "Graveyard Dust" (ISBN 13: 9780553575286; ISBN 10: 0553575287)
Sharon Kay Penman: "Cruel as the Grave" (ISBN 10: 0345441443; ISBN 13: 9780345441447)
Jess Walter: "Over Tumbled Graves" (ISBN: 9780061032004; ISBN 10: 006103200X)
Jeffery Deaver: "Shallow Graves" (ISBN 13: 9780671047481; ISBN 10: 0671047485) and "A Maiden's Grave" (ISBN 13: 9780451204295; ISBN 10: 0451204298)
Mary Willis Walker: "Under the Beetle's Cellar" (ISBN 10: 0553571737; ISBN 13: 9780553571738) -- also for "Creepy Crawlies" and "Genre: Mystery" (involves the burial -- alive -- of a whole school bus full of children and their bus driver)

Also: Günter Grass: "The Call of the Toad" (ISBN 13: 9780156153409; ISBN 10: 0156153408) -- set in the cemetery business
