Here is an article about San Francisco and its cemetery history. From the article (emphasis mine):

The vast complex of public and private cemeteries throughout San Francisco
would eventually comprise between 60 and 70 blocks of prime land. This
realization astonished the City Fathers of San Francisco and they passed a law
that would forbid human burials within the City after Aug. 1, 1901.

Here is another piece about one of the suburbs, which is overwhelmingly filled with cemeteries.
