After (or before) visiting the courtyard of the Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd., where the hand and footprints of myriad movie stars can be seen, if you are a motion picture fan you should come here, a tiny dignified oasis of a cemetery tucked away behind tall buildings, in which more movie and recording stars than you can imagine are...

Everyone has heard about Marilyn Monroe and that she is cremated and she is entombed here. This cemetery is about the size of a football field or even small, but has over two dozen very famous people buried here. If you're over the age of thirty, you'll easily recognize the movie stars, singers, and others from all walks of life.... More

Even walking down all the aisles didn't take long. It's compact and easily missed if not looking carefully for that one small riad between two buildings to drive down to get to it. Everyone is here Marilyn Monroe, Mel Torme, Jack Lemmon, Matthau, Dangerfield, Natalie Wood, Merv Griffin, Farrah Fawcett, Don Knotts, the list goes on and on. No map... More

You have to be in the know to find this place. Even with directions it took us a while but it was well worth it. There are many celebrities buried there but because it is tucked away it is never crowded. Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, Don Knotts, Farrah Fawcett, Natalie Wood just to name a few. It is small enough... More

Westwood is tucked behind a library and between some other buildings. We drove around it a couple times before we realized we were right where we needed to be. For a small burial ground, an amazing amount of stars are interred there. Marilyn Monroe is probably the biggest of the big, but so many others rest here as well. Walter... More

"Natalie Wood" and "Marilyn Monroe" memorials draw people here ....but there are so many recognisable names in these quiet surroundings....few people who wander respectfully around while the hustle and bustle of Westwood is just a few steps away

I researched where Marilyn was buried as I am a huge fan and I just had to visit it when I was in L.A. This memorial park is very small but it is absolutely beautiful. It is so quiet and peaceful. Seeing Marilyns grave was breath taking & I actually shed a few tears. Dean Martin & Farrah Fawecett (to... More

Situated in among the tall office buildings in the Westwood section of LA is a small cemetery where many of Hollywood's most popular celebrities are buried. Beautiful grounds and a quiet enviorment make this a very enjoyable visit.

These people, famous and otherwise, are DEAD! Leave them in peace! Other than the fact that once-famous people are buried here, there is nothing remotely interesting about this place.
