Cremation Options

Choosing cremation is a decision reflective of your most personally held beliefs. Today, more and more individuals and families are selecting cremation, creating a new tradition for those who follow. Hollywood Forever offers a full range of cremation options, including direct cremation, witnessed cremation, cremation with a memorial service, or cremation preceded by a traditional funeral service.

On-Site Crematory

Hollywood Forever has provided cremation services on its grounds to the Los Angeles community since 1928. Our current, state-of-the-art crematory adjoins the main chapel, allowing ceremonies and memorials to conclude with a leave-taking in the crematory. This configuration makes Hollywood Forever especially accommodating of Buddhist, Hindu, and Sikh traditions.

Cremation Niches

Hollywood Forever Cemetery offers both indoor and outdoor niches for the permanent placement of urns, so family and friends can visit for generations to come.

Cremation Plots

A cremation urn may be placed in a dedicated space in one of the cemetery’s beautiful lawns or gardens.

Rose Garden Placement

Cremated remains may be commingled with the earth of the cemetery’s Rose Garden, where the Garden Gates memorial walls offer bronze plaques to memorialize both those resting nearby and those present solely in spirit.
