And some servants. Victoria's Baron Stockmar is there.
I didn't know Baron Stockmar was buried in England. I thought he went back to Thuringia.

...
Wikipedia says that the Marie of Roumania of Dorothy Parker fame is buried in Sinaia. Or have you had in mind her daughter, the Queen Consort to King Alexander I of Yugoslavia?

Some french kings and family were buried in Saint Denis-A Cemetery of Kings, it has a very interesting background. Read about it here:

Saint Denis was the only royal burial site that could compare to Westminster Abbey. At the time of the French Revolution, centuries of gravesites were destroyed in a few days time. What a horrible shame.

I am going to try to contribute slightly more of information about the burials of the Spanish Royal Family.

Almost all the members of the Spanish Royal Family from Carlos I of Spain are buried in El Escorial. The Kings' Pantheon possesses a series of urns where they guard the remains of the Kings and the Queens, their remains are deposited years after passing a few years in a place that is known as the "pudridero" (not exactly all the years are, I believe that 25). (Photos 1-2).

Later in another place of El Escorial is the Infantes' pavilion (3-4-5-6), inside the pavilion os the Infantes there is a tomb dedicated to the preschoolers, the babies who were dying. (7-8)

There are 2 names missing from who is buried in St. George's Chapel--Henry VIII and Jane Seymour.

Accoriding to Antonia Fraser in The Wives of Henry VIII:

It was under the aupices of the new Protector that the King's funeral was now arranged to take place in St George's, Windsor. That was the site King Henry had designated for his burial. . .(he ordered his body) 'to be placed with the bones of our true and loving wife, Queen' Jane. . .So Queen Jane's tomb, halfway between the high altar and the choir stalls was opened up again after nine years. (pp 394-395).

I was in the crypt a few years ago. Below the sanctuary and High Altar there is a chapel which is used for daily Mass. It is entered by an outside door at the back of the cathedral (though I suppose there must also be an entrance from inside.) At the back of the chapel is the royal crypt. If I remember correctly, the coffins lie on shelves and can be seen throught metal gates.

If you are interested in where British royals are buried both in St. Georges Chapel and at the royal cemetery at Frogmore see this site: www.stgeorges-windsor.org. Once on the site go to history and then click on royal connection. Good luck.

Check this site out, its a great site, it has all the Danish sovereigns tombs. Its worth a look
It's truly an excellent site.

I remember visiting Roskilde Cathedral one summer when I was fairly young. I was a bit creeped out by all the "coffins", but fairly intrigued by Margrete I's, as it had a statue lying on top of it.

About Spanish sovereigns not all of them are buried at El Escorial, for example the Catholic Kings are buried at The Royal Chapel in Granada:
©ARB
This contain remains of Queen Isabella I the Catholic of Castile (†1504), King Philip I the Fair of Castile (†1506), King Ferdinand II (V) the Catholic of Aragon and Castile (†1516) and Queen Joan the Mad of Castile (†1555).
Almost all Kings of Spain since Charles I (+1558) have been buried in El Escorial, with the exceptions of : Ferdinand VI (+1759) buried at the Church of Saint Barbara in Madrid, Philip V(the first Borbon monarch of Spain +1746) buried at the Granja San Idelfonso Monastery and Amadeo di Savoy-Aosta (+1890) buried at the Basilica di Superga in Torino
