OK so I'm a Hollywood junkie and spent a couple of hours here. THE place to go to see the star's graves. This place is huge, full of monuments and churches. Maybe a little over the top but, hey - it's LA! Do not come here expecting to find a map to the star's graves - they are not a... More

The grounds are gorgeous. When planning a funeral, make sure to pay for individual items rather than the package deal disguised as a money-saving option. You will save thousands by choosing items individually rather than paying for higher priced items that are unnecessary. As with any high ticket item purchase, buyer beware and try to leave the emotions at home.... More

Yes this is the oldest Forest lawn Memorial properties but they are more than just a final resting place for your love ones. There museum here is awesome. The curator here has brought some very impressive art exhibitions to Glendale. Current show has rock and roll photography and original album covers by the artist on display.

Our GPS kept leading us past this place at night. We couldn't really tell what it was but we suspected it might be a cemetery based solely on the name. We drove by another day before it was dark and realized we were correct. I was surprised at how beautiful the area was. There was a lot of attention to... More

Impressive history and well maintained. Beautiful grounds. Ron gave us the ride-a-long tour. No pressure, informational, compassionate. Appreciated this very much. I could feel very good about a loved one being interned here.

I recently held my mother's funeral at the red church at Forest Lawn and had around 120 family and friends in attendance. My mother had purchased a plot there 10 years prior--just steps away from that red church. From the moment I met with the employees of the Mortuary who planned and executed the funeral, I was impressed with their... More

We only had an hour here, but it was much more than we expected. The designer, builder, was responsible for changing cemeteries with tomb stones into lawn covered parks. and small plaques. Lots of good reproductions of Renaissance Italian art and buildings.Allow 2 or three hours to reflect and explore.

My girlfriend and I went up to the museum to see Vroom showcase. There were many older and newer motorcycles on display along with works of art. It was short but very pleasing. I learned a lot in a very short time.

My family is all here in the Hollywood Hills, I have had a long standing tradition of visiting at Christmas and putting Poinsettias on each grave. I now have six deliveries every year. I am coming down from WA to do this now. It's so beautiful with the wreaths, and fully decorated trees placed on graves. The hills come alive... More
