    I believe that the grave was used because it was thought to be a safe hiding place ... (It wasn't hidden in a contemporary grave, .. most probably an old dry lined tomb/masoleum).
    Obviously at this point of the war, the Germans even if they had known there was a standard hidden in a graveyard, would most probably have not bothered wasting manpower searching for it when there were more pressing tasks at hand.
