Necrophobia is the abnormal fear of death or dead things. Those who have necrophobia also have a fear of things associated with death. This includes morgues, funerals, tombstones, and coffins. A person with necrophobia could possibly even have a serious dislike of nursing homes and hospitals, since they can be places of death. Would a person with necrophobia attend the funeral of a parent who died? Or would the fear overcome him and keep him away?
