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

I could not believe how small this was. I went there to see MM and found lots of other famous graves. Kept very tidy.

Its not overly large but it certainly a who's who of the dearly departed Its beautifully maintained and you would need about 40 minutes to wander around. Very easy to find with a bus stop nearby Rodney Dangerfield's inscription was a classic 'there goes the neighbourhood'

At first it was hard to locate as it is wedge between a neighborhood and commercial highrise buildings. Trust your GPS to lead you here. No need to park in the underground garage, drive right through the gates on to the property. There are no guides here. Wander around the small property. Start at the small chapel where directly in...

My maternal grandmother, who passed in 1989, is interred here - whenever I am in the Los Angeles area I make a point of stopping to visit, leaving a single tea rose as I depart. This is a very beautiful, peaceful spot, and I always enjoy a little time here before getting back on the road and heading home to... More

Our last day in LA & flying home late at night, I took the wife here as I was interested in seeing the graves of stars mentioned in other reviews, & she wanted somewhere quiet & cooler to rest up. This spot satisfied us both! I had done some research & had a map of most of the notable sites.... More

If you want to see the resting places of the big stars go to Westwood Cemetery. Put it into your Mapquest. It is really there. Its worth the trip.

On our recent visit to LA we visited various cemeteries as my husband is on the Board of a local cemetery here in SI. We had a had time finding this place as it is nestled behind office buildings. However, this resting place has some of the most celebrated Hollywood names, Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, Natalie Wood, Farah Fawcett, Jack... More

This is a small cemetary and it is easy to find the various gravesites of deceased celebrities. Some there are Marilyn Monroe, Farrah Faucett, Merv Griffin, Peter Faulk, Donna Reed, Natalie Wood, Karl Malden, Dorothy Stratten, Dominique Dunne, Rodney Dangerfield. You can park for free right in the cemetary so don't park in one of the nearby lotsI found a... More

Visit Marilyn Monroe and many others, hidden away behind banking buildings. well with the visit of the beaten path. A good couple hours to explore. Don't miss the back corner with fanny Bryce,
