Amazing that Frank didn't have more of burial site. It's a simple grave marker near where the much of the rest of his family is also buried. There is a nice brochure available from the cemetery office that tells you where the site is (it happens to be right next to the office). Also buried in the same cemetery is... More

Amazing how understated is the famous crooner's final resting spot. Can only assume it is because he chose to be buried by his parents. Sonny Bono is also resting here along with Busby Berkeley of 30's movie fame. All the graves are marked by simple plaques flush with the ground-. So very unlike what one would expect of Southern California.

The final resting place of Mr. Sinatra is so simple and I liked that he is next to his parents and a couple of his good friends. He had a wonderful life and brought enjoyment to so many of us. Definitely worth stopping by to pay your respects.

A friend was visiting who is a Serious Sinatra Fan. Just Had To Go. So we went. I was really surprised how simple the marker was. My friend was ecstatic. I was not. Don't leave flowers in Summer!

My visiting cousin has this thing about visiting the grave sites of famous people. We went to Frank Sinatra's grave site and it was really a pleasant experience. It was fun to find the grave sites of other famous people. There are fountains there and it is very quiet. We made the acquaintance of other visitors who had interesting information... More

Hardly what I expected but was just like anyone else as I suppose there are rules in the cemetary. There's just not much to say. It was a hot day and we were searching for something to do.

The graves of Frank Sinatra and other stars are located in the cemetery located on Ramon and Duvall in Cathedral City.Maps are located by the office and it is easy to find other gravesites such as Sonny Bono.

If you liked this man in life then make your way to this out of the way graveyard. There are other stars buried here also. Across the street (Ramon Rd at Forest Lawn Memorial Park) you will find more stars "resting in peace". As for me , I find it depressing even so my parents are "resting there". If you... More
