Why are the people who live near the cemetery not allowed to be buried there ?

Very prestigious address...but the authorities will not allow any of the people who live in the surrounding neighborhoods to be buried there.

Sorry...I never noticed PG's comment before I wrote mine. After seeing your comment, I went to her link; but the photo was not there. Anyways, to see that cemetery is quite an experience. I was glad I purchased a map at the entrance, or I would not have found any graves I was looking for, and would have gotten lost in the maize of streets...avenues...alleys. Just like a mini city! All have names...lots of trees...some cats. I was particularly interested, aside from Edith Piaf's, in finding Sarah Bernhardt and Oscar Wilde's thombs. I even saw the one for one of the Bourbon princes. Many of the mausoleums were huge - the architecture incredible. And thank God for running shoes...those cobblestones were a killer. I spent two hours there - went across the street for reinforcement (food & wine) and returned for another two hours.

Picture Girl got it first ! It is Pere Lachaise Cemetery, founded by Napoleon in 1804 and the final resting place of statesmen, artists and poets. Among the most notable persons there interred are Balzac, Bizet, Chopin, Marcel Marceau, Marshall Ney, Edith Piaf, Marcel Proust and Jim Morrison.

After further honing my investigative skills, I have solved the mystery. It's Cimitière Père Lachaise Stairway - Siebrand @ commons.wikimedia.org.

I know...I know!! It's either Cimitière du Monparnasse or Cimitière Père-Lachaise or Cimitière Montmartre....or maybe Cemetery in New Orleans since on one headstone it's written 'Famille'. I knew I still had my super duper sleuting skills ;-)

I'm with PictureGirl, I think it is the cemetery.

Is this Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris ?

Looks like New Orleans, Lousiana, USA
