While graveyards and cemeteries seems like the same word for most people, the key difference is that graveyards are attached to churches while a cemetery stands alone.

PS OMG! That battle scene with Euron! I hope Theon gets a redemption, coz man....what he did.... And so sad about the Nymeria reunion but I guess that was the "realistic" end to their bond.

I know back home there is a graveyard attached to nearly every church, but didn't realise there was an actual difference between the two names.

I didn't know there was a difference. I like to know the precise meanings of words, so thanks, Adam!
