Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the history, the architecture, the beauty, and mostly the serenity of a cemetery, especially Hollywood Forever where I've been visiting for 31 years. I enjoy fulfilling photo requests at this cemetery the most.

I've been seeing more and more requests for photos without any grave location information. Cemetery offices are much more likely to cheerfully provide family members with grave locations than photo volunteers, especially those of us they see often. Some cemeteries won't provide grave locations to photo volunteers.

Currently Hollywood Forever has over 89,000 graves; their phone number is 323-469-1181 and their email address is

Please allow any cemetery enough time to respond. Realistically, finding grave locations is not a priority in the day to day operation of an active cemetery.

RE: The Batty's
Scary how headstones just simply slip away and no one seems to notice. I wonder about the little cremation plaques in a couple of sections. When I used to go over a lot I was always tearing away grass so they could be seen and not forgotten!

RE: Battey's in Hollywood
Ok, best I can do at the moment (just got home from work). Walter Raymond Battey married Jessie Woodman. Jessie Myrtle Battey daughter of Clarence Sanford and Maude A. Walker Battey married Clarence Overpeck. Not sure about the rest atthe moment. Need to print this out so I can look at it properly.

Thanks so much, Jim, for the photo and information. Shame some stones are gone (or were simply never there). I appreciate your time. David
