Stellan Persson wrote:
The Cementerio Jardin, Pablo Nogués, Av. Samuel Morse 303, Provincia de Buenos Aires became the last resting-place of the Danish GM Bent Larsen. A beautiful park, no large building or mausoleum, about 30 km away from Buenos Aires and not far away from Martinez, his home.
A small office informs about the place of the grave. The cemetery was opened in May, 1971. (There is an older British Cemetery on Plaza 1 de Mayo, in the centre of Buenos Aires.)

Another page which deals with gravesites of chess masters is Edward Winter's compilation Chess Explorations (8) - Graves of Chess Masters.

A nice booklet on "chess graves" was published 5 years ago in the Netherlands:
Rob Bijpost, Fred van der Vliet: Schaakgraven. Schaakkoerier no. 82. Motiefgroep Schaken (ed./publ.), 2006, 44 pp.
Here the cover of the booklet as PDF. The contents is also given on http://www.euwe.nl/koerier82-thema.htm.
