You can get up to 3-4 items of seemingly average quality per grave, neither much better nor much worse than ordinary (non-unique mob) loot. The Reputation cost is minimal compared to the mass amount of RP that every character has. You can dig 20 graves--probably several towns' worth--complete one average quest, and break even on RP.
You won't gain much, but you won't lose much, either.
BTW, I love your username. There's an Australian dog food named Chum with the irresistible slogan "So Chumpy... you can CARVE it!" Best said in the voice of Groundskeeper Willie.
