Cemetery near Ijebu Ode.jpg
The cemeteries found in cities are typically for those who were immigrants to Nigeria. The native custom is to be buried on your own property, either a piece of land that is purchased or somewhere within the village where a person was born or raised. Consequently, a native Nigerian would be buried in a common cemetery if they died without owning their own property, or if they were not living near their own village of birth. The information found on the headstones in the cemeteries of Nigeria can give details about birth, death, children's names and name of spouse. In addition, the headstone might contain information about the person's immigration to Nigeria. The most effective way for native Nigerians to obtain information about their ancestors is to visit the living members in the village where their father and mother were born and raised.
