  • This is a true LA cultural experience that you need to pair with a day of activity in Hollywood. So interesting, historic and fun 
  • I'm a big fan of the Ramones so as so this was top of the list of things to do in LA for me. We looked up the location of Johnny and Dee Dee's graves online beforehand, and they were very easy to find...  more »
  • ...but I found it fascinating! This cemetery gives an interesting insight into early Hollywood residents. It also tells a story of how those, with far to much money, desire to be remembered. Micky Rou...  more »

  • Came here for a beautiful outdoor concert. Not sure if the production value is tied to the specific concert or the venue but it was awesome. Parking was all sold out at the lots they contract with so I ended up parking two blocks north and it wasn't too hard to find. Ample facilities too so overall a great experience.
  • This place isn't just historic or well known because of the people buried here. It is simply beautiful. It's jaw dropping.
  • Love the location. Attention to grieving family - Perfection! Purchased a complete package - plot to monument plus Service. Reassurance Forever!
  • Over priced and they don't even say hello when you come thru the door and they have peacocks running around deficating on Ur granny's grave
  • The cemetery is a true experience. The grounds are flawless with an overwhelming amount of structures. Some structures are gaudy, over-the-top, and superficial, but other internments are modest. For example, Mel Blanc, "The Man of a Thousand Voices," has a simple headstone. The location is right in the middle of Hollywood making it a convenient "must see."
