Hollywood Forever offers a wide range of burial places and memorialization options.
We offer a wide selection of traditional burial spaces throughout our park-like grounds. Our beautiful lakes, reflecting pools, and forested lawns offer a variety of scenic spots to select from. Many areas have a view of the Hollywood sign in the distance. Each grave space at Hollywood is considered a double interment space and can accommodate up to two burials. Family members may also purchase additional interment rights for cremation burials on existing family graves.
The grounds of Hollywood Forever are dotted with granite private family mausoleums. With our masons and stone resources, we can help you design a private building for your final resting place that matches your aesthetics with burial crypts and cremation niches to serve generations of your family.
Hollywood Forever has many historic mausoleum buildings as well as an ongoing construction program to create 25,000 new crypt spaces over the next 15 years in our five-story mausoleum with views of downtown and the Hollywood Hills. Mausoleum crypts are our most affordable traditional burial option.
Green and Natural Burial
Though our rules and regulations require that for ground burial, caskets must be buried with vaults, we increasingly make exceptions for those wishing to be buried naturally in simple pine or wicker caskets with no embalming or vaults. For those wishing to have a green burial in a conservation landscape, we can arrange for transfers to our sister cemetery in Marin County, Fernwood Cemetery.
Fernwood Cemetery is one of the first green burial grounds of its kind in the United States and continues to pioneer green and conservation burial techniques and emerging traditions. Fernwood also includes Gan Yarok, America’s first green Jewish cemetery.
