For male version, he should wears a white long-sleeved shirt, a black overall jumpsuit, a black ivy cap, and black boots. They also carry a shovel as a tool.

About Cemetery Caretaker

Cemetery Caretaker is a basically a cemetery work who digs a grave in prior to the burial service in funeral. Cemetery caretaker or gravedigger is often found living in churches' area since the graveyard is a part of them.

Many times, this type of work is passed down family, from the older to younger generations. But it is also not uncommon to see people volunteer for the job.
