Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in Colma, California is an American Roman Catholic cemetery operated by the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Established in 1887 on 300 acres (1.2 km2) of a former potato farm, it is the oldest and largest cemetery established in Colma to serve the needs of San Francisco. Several notable historical figures are interred at Holy Cross. Two of the three cemetery sequences in the film Harold and Maude were filmed here.

The cemetery contains one British Commonwealth war grave, of a Canadian Infantry soldier of World War I.[1]
