The Sunnydale Cemetery was the main cemetery in town and seemed to be the cemetery of choice for most burials/funerals. It was also the main slay ground for Buffy Summers who regularly patrolled here, waiting by new graves until the vampire rose and fought her. It also contained Spike's Crypt and Buffy's gravestone during the time she was dead.
