Some are accustomed not to visit cemeteries throughout the month of Nissan. If one has the Yartzite of a parent, or other close relative, in the month of Nissan, he is to visit the grave on Erev Rosh Chodesh Nissan. Others however are accustomed to visit cemeteries during the month of Nissan, just like any other time of the year, and hence of they have a Yartzite, end of Shiva or Shloshim during Nissan, they visit the grave as usual. Nonetheless, in all cases, one is to avoid crying.
Kivrei Tzaddikim: There is no need to avoid visiting the gravesites of Tzaddikim during the month of Nissan.
May a Matzeiva [tombstone] be established during the month of Nissan?
Some Poskim rule one may not establish a Matzeiva in the month of Nissan. Other Poskim rule it is permitted to do so, so long as eulogies will not take place during the occasion.
