“The one to visit”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

If your into visiting graves of famous peoples graves and don't want to waste all day finding one grave this is the one for you , Nestled in between high rises in Westwood you will enter on Glendon ave.You have to be quick or you will miss it. Once your in you will be amazed how many you will see as your just park your car.we parked I looked to my left and right in front. Of me were Merv Griffin,Rodney dangerfield, Walter Matthau and Farrah fawcet. My favorite grave was Don Knotts which has many of his characters on his grave . Their are maps available online that will help you find them even easier. This is the one to visit for sure

“A Hidden Treasure in West Los Angeles”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Although a bit difficult to locate without an exact street address and a GPS, a visit to Westwood Memorial is WELL worth the effort to get there! I would recommend going on a Sunday afternoon. We virtually had the entire place to ourselves, so we had ample opportunity to peruse and take in the beauty of this place. The grounds are very well kept, and obviously, you'll want to take your camera. If you want to see the graves of specific celebrities, it's worth a little bit of research time online prior to your visit. There are several sites online which tell you how to locate specific gravesites. You cannot visit Westwood Memorial without seeing the names of several well known celebrities, but some graves are unmarked and/or are scattered about sufficiently that finding a grave randomly is difficult. It's nice to take your lunch and simply relax here if you have the time.

“Great place”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This place is well hidden and for a good reason. You will spend hours here reading the headstones. There are countless famous people buried here.
