According to Hadith, women have been forbidden to visit graves. Hence women and small children should not go there. Just they should recite the holy Quran at their homes and do Isal-e-Sawab along with doing dua for their maghfirah. It is homage for them.
رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا وَلِإِخْوَانِنَا الَّذِينَ سَبَقُونَا بِالْإِيمَانِ الخ [الحشر : 10]

Allah knows Best!
