Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a person had committed suicide, where should he be buried? 


A: If he is a Muslim, then he will be buried in the Muslim graveyard.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

( من قتل نفسه ) ولو ( عمدا يغسل و يصلى ) به يفتى وإن كان أعظم وزرا من قاتل غيره ورجح الكمال قول الثاني بما في مسلم أنه عليه الصلاة والسلام أتي برجل قتل نفسه فلم يصل عليه
قال الشامي : قوله ( به يفتى ) لأنه فاسق غير ساع في الأرض بالفساد وإن كان باغيا على نفسه كسائر فساق المسلمين زيلعي (رد المحتار 2/211)
