Forest Lawn Cemetery
Forest Lawn Cemetery is also known by its nickname ‘Glendale’s Walk of Fame’, as this is the place where a number of famous celebrities are buried. As a result, many people travel here to pay homage to one of their heroes, and you will find the graves of film stars, singers, and musicians here, as well as a number of other famous professions. Michael Jackson is interred here, as is Humphrey Bogart and Sammy Davis Junior. Our original Forest Lawn location has been a Southern California landmark since 1906. It has a world-renowned art museum, extraordinary statuary, and the Hall of the Crucifixion-Resurrection which is home to two of the largest religious paintings in the Western hemisphere.
Since its founding in 1906, Forest Lawn has been an integral part of the community it serves. Our Founder, Dr. Hubert Eaton, profoundly changed the funeral business by transforming Forest Lawn Memorial-Park into a place for the living. By combining the mortuary and cemetery sides of the business, Eaton achieved his goal, making Forest Lawn a beautiful setting for services, weddings, baptisms, and family excursions. After 100 years of service, the Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks remain a place for the living and a true community resource. Community outreach and involvement have been part of Forest lawn’s commitment since the organization’s beginning. From the first Decoration (or Memorial) Day in 1915 and first Easter Sunrise Service in 1921, Forest Lawn brought its spirit of celebrating the living and honoring the past to its communities. Our annual candle-lighting ceremonies help people remember and honor their lost loved ones. Throughout its community involvement, Forest Lawn has celebrated life and its meaningful memories. Our locations in the Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties serve all faiths and cultures, and offer a wide range of celebrations and special events. We are proud to offer competitively priced cremation and traditional funeral services throughout Southern California. Explore our site and contact us if you have any questions.
Since our founding, Forest Lawn has committed itself to providing outstanding service and beautiful environments for family outings, remembering loved ones, and commemorating holidays. Whether you are planning how to help your loved ones remember you, memorializing someone special in your life, or joining us for holiday events like Easter or Memorial Day, we invite you to visit Forest Lawn.
