The list of people laid to rest here reads like a "who's who" of Hollywood royalty.. including Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, Natalie Wood and many, many more .. It's both sobering and exciting to walk the rows.. Highly recommended..

Marilyn Monroe is famously buried here as are many other stars and just regular people. It's a very calm place and beautifully maintained.

This place is difficult to find, but it is right next to a library who will give you directions. The cemetery is full of 'stars' including Marilyn Monroe. Time your visit for the anniversary of her death and there will be a memorial service taking place.

Stumbled across this small plot of land in Westwood only to be told that Marilyn Monroe was buried here. It is a beautifully kept cemetery hidden amid some high rise buildings. She is the most famous but you will find many other performers and Hollywood personalities buried here.

Hidden away behind tall buildings off Wiltshire Boulevard is this beautiful resting place for many Hollywood stars. I have visited LA on numerous occasions but never knew about this place until a friend from Santa Monica took me there. I found the graves of so many stars and would have loved to have spent more time in this beautiful serene... More

This cemetery sits just off of Wilshire Blvd. and not many people are aware of its location. It is a small and beautiful site, but the reason to visit are to see the famous celebrities that have chosen this site as their final resting place.Reading the names and their final words can be hilarious especially in the case of Merv...

This is a beautiful little cemetery on the south side of Wilshire Blvd, behind a first run cinema complex topped with bill boards and yards of restaurants in Westwood village itself and lining the south side of Westwood Blvd. This area serves UCLA and Ronald medical center,so there are lots of exciting ethnic restaurants,with not a dud in the bunch....

Morbid but true. This is where many of the stars from Hollywood have come to rest. There are so many of them here that it is hard to be sure you have seen them all. Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, Burt Lancaster, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matheau, Rodney Dangerfield, Mel Torme, etc. etc. etc. Do a Google search for a map of... More

The cemetery where Marilyn Monroe and other famous people are laid to rest. It is small, well kept, and very peaceful.

A little hard to find as it is tucked away behind some big buildings, but well worth the search. Plenty to see, such as Dean Martin, Carrol O'Conner, Mel Torme, Don Knotts, the original Odd Couple - Jack Lemon & Walter Matthau, Roy Orbison, Frank Zappa and of course Marilyn. Free parking and only two other couples visiting while we... More
