Grave is a lunar crater that lies in the northern interior floor of the huge Gagarin walled-plain, on the far side of the Moon. It is located about 10 kilometers to the east-northeast of the larger Isaev crater, which covers the northwestern part of Gagarin's interior.

Like many lunar craters, Grave crater has undergone some erosion due to subsequent impacts. There are small craters across the east and southwestern sides of the circular rim. There is a low rise near the mid-point of the interior.
