I would think that Redwallers were buried at the church, or there was somehow some random graveyard that was never mentioned, but I doubt that there was a graveyard that was never mentioned.

But don't forget where they buried the Galloper in Rakkety Tam, forget his name but he had a twin sister. I really need to read this series again.

where in the abbey grounds did they bury rollo's mom and the friar in mattimeo? I know it was in the abbey but I don't think they said where.

Most abbeys have a cemetery, so logically they were buried in one.

Lots of characters were buried under a tree. Or on a hill, or in a garden, or near a lake, or...you get the idea. In weird places they thought the dead creature would like to have been or did like in their lifetime.

I thought they threw them in one giant pit and covered it.

Has anyone thought about how many are buried on the Abby grounds? How many Dibbuns do you think have asked "Oi, Muver Abbess, marm, who's buried under that tree?"

What if Redwall is like Paris with the catacombs, and it is structurally atop a massive graveyard.

Well, with the cellars, and the tunnels from Doomwyte, and the remains of Castle Kotir, I doubt there is enough room for any catacombs. As a matter of fact, there is enough underground that I am surprised Redwall is structurally sound- it must have had an incredible amount of foundation work done. Moles do know their trade, though.


I think it's more likely that beasts which die in Redwall are buried out in the forest, or in a miscellaneous natural setting, than in a grave. Redwallers have a much more naturalistic lifestyle, so I think the idea of "returning them to nature" is reasonable for the setting (and I think it happens several times throughout the series). This would explain why Redwall has no graveyard.
