If you ever happen to visit the location, each village did not have its own cemetery; it was located in the larger village that had the church. I haven't looked at your locations to see their size. The other thing is that, unlike the USA, the grave location is not permanent, so to speak. Cemetery markers more than 100 years old are rare. (Jewish cemeteries are an exception.) But its quite an experience to be by a church from 1342 and realize your ancestors worshipped there.
