Ten best graveyard scenes in fiction

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best graveyard scenes in fiction.

One title on the list:
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling

The climax takes place in the graveyard of Little Hangleton, a muggle village where Voldemort's family (the Riddles) had their home (before he killed them). Harry is gagged and tied to a tombstone while Peter Pettigrew uses one of Voldemort's father's bones to conjure new powers for Harry's foe. A duel of curses ensues and Harry escapes.
Read about another graveyard scene on Mullan's list.
