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,

We had a brilliant day - only thing missing was sadly our 11 year old daughter who would have loved it. Waiting time was not too bad so we managed to experience most of the rides/tours - the actual tram around the studios itself was fantastic and a lot of fun - will definitely be going back there!

This small cemetery is located a half block off Wilshire Boulevard and can be tough to find. Heading east on Wilshire, turn right on Glendon, then make an immediate left in the next Little alley. Many celebrities are interred in this small space in the middle of a city setting. Marilyn Monroe, Peggy Lee, Don Knott to name a few.... More

It feels a bit wierd reviewing a cemetery as a place to visit but it was truly beautiful and as a fan of celebrity life (and death) definitely worth a look. Free entry. Wouldve been impossible to find had our taxi driver not known the location.

We had my dad's memorial service here many years ago. The staff was very accommodating, and kind. The grounds were nicely laid out.

We found, after searching for a long time, this cozy cemetery for the first time in 1982. Since then we go back every year to this cemetery and enjoy the peace and quietness. During our last visit we were present when Samuel Simon (co-creator of The Simpsons) was buried. The search for the graves of media figures is now a... More
