grabarz

well, my limited knowledge of English doesn't allow me to be 100% sure (and I have no idea about USA/UK differences), but I think that:

grabarz = gravedigger
undertaker = przedsiębiorca pogrzebowy (boss/owner of a company that prepares the body and arranges everything for the funeral)

That would be firm, yes, but the man carrying the coffin would be a 'karawaniarz'.

Haven't visited this site for a while so wasn't aware of the controversy my posting had caused. So if Wspiąć się isn't used much in normal conversation how would I say 'Tomorrow I will climb that mountain' and 'Yesterday I climbed that mountain'?

Around here... doesn't take much :)
"Jutro wespnę się na tę górę"
"wczoraj wspiąłem się na tę górę"

Somebody also wrote this sentence 'wejdę pod górę' as an alternative to using the verb wsiąć. But I thought wejdę was from the verb 'wejść' to enter. And why the preposition pod?

'wejdę pod górę'

it shoud be 'wejdę na górę'
wejść can be used with "do" (to enter) and with "na" (climb on something)
