The Graveyard Key is found in a secret cave in the southern part of Yoll Graveyard in Oracle of Ages. It is needed to open a gate in the northern part of the Graveyard to access the eastern part and reach the Spirit's Grave.

The Minish Cap

Dampé the gravedigger gives the Graveyard Key to Link while he is traveling about the Royal Crypt region of Hyrule in The Minish Cap.[3] As Link steps out of Dampé's house, a Crow steals it. By knocking the Key loose from a Tree in the same area, Link is able to reacquire it and open the locked gate.
