28 Magical Facts about Dumbledore You Probably Haven’t Heard Before
He is the only wizard to have been buried at Hogwarts
Any other headmaster would want to be buried with his or her family, and not at the school they work at. However, Hogwarts truly was Dumbledore’s home, and the students and faculty his family. Because he lost most of his family fairly young and he largely blames himself for their fates, there was probably also the guilt of being buried near them that kept him from going back to Godric’s Hollow to be laid to rest. There are discrepancies between the books and films as to where he was actually buried: in the book, his tomb is next to the black lake, but in the film, it’s shown on an island in the middle of the lake. Either way, his is the only tomb at Hogwarts.
