St Peter-port cemetery Guernsey
Just a comment - there are records of burials at St Peter-port Guernsey cemetery (information taken from cemetery headstones) but this cemetery does not seem to be recognised as a standard place. I have to put place of burial as St Peter-port and then explain in the comments that the burial was in this cemetery

You can suggest a new place. See this Help Article. You can also put the full cemetery name in the placename field, while using an existing standardized place. For example, I've standardized to the town, but I'm still able to use the full name of a family cemetery, which is not in standardized places:0

You can add "St Peter-Port cemetery" at the beginning of the displayed placename, and associate it with the town or parish as the standard.
But it kind of goes without saying that a burial in a place takes place in the cemetery at that place, no?
If you really want to add the cemetery to the places database -- if it's perhaps well outside town or something? -- then you can make that suggestion using the Places tool/site (https://www.familysearch.org/research/places/).1

if it's perhaps well outside town....
I see this factor as the only strong reason for adding cemeteries as additional placenames to the database. Unless, in this case, the cemetery is outside of St Peter Port, I'd just follow Julia's illustration in making it part of the display name, then standardising to Saint Peter Port, Guernsey.
Having written the above, I notice there already is a place in the database that appears to match:
Or are you talking about a cemetery outside of the grounds of the church?2
