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.

Memorials are gladly transferred to anyone who'd like them - save for my own family members.

Always feel free to post a Public Message for me.

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. We don't want to wear out our welcome, so to speak, and appreciate your calling or emailing the cemetery in advance to get the grave location. Please help us help you!

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

Please allow them plenty of time to get back to you.

Dear Jim,

Thank you for adding those very nice additional shots of his location. I love the one of the Columbarium section. I have transferred his memorial to a lady who was his best friend in High School. Best Regards, James Mason (Romper90069)

Roscoe Gates
Thank you Jim for letting me know for sure that Roscoe does not have a headstone. I will now pursue the military records to see if we can get a headstone from them.

It appears to that 2 of his sons died in the same area and I am also trying to determine where they are buried.

Thank you for all of your help!

Hi Jim,
I don't know yet if he was in the war but I did find his draft registration. I'm still looking for more info.

RE: Gary Iblings' photo request
Hey Jim, Thx for being so respectful as always. Hey it was a duplicate of James Sidelmans, a pal of mine, his was spelled wrong. I posted a photo the my original memorial when I created. It is actually spelled Iblings. Memorial 97998911

Best Regards,

RE: Roscoe Franklin 'Ross' Gates
Thank you so very much! You're the best.

He's in the last row near the Movie Lot.

My name was supposed to have an 'e' in it but it was left off over 60 years ago and we just left it that way. It's pronounced Sheryl.

I may have some more requests for you down the road as I am trying to track downs many lost relatives as possible.

In Roscoe's case I was originally looking in the wrong place until I received the correct death record.

I'm still working on his brother William L Gates, also listed by J in Oak Hill, Red Bluff, CA. but they have no record of him. I'll need to see his death records and go from there.

Thanks again,

Roscoe Franklin 'Ross' Gates
Hi Jim,
Per his death certificate and a gentleman I spoke to yesterday, Aug. 04, 2015, at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Roscoe is actually buried there in Section 10, Grave 151.
The individual who created the Find A Grave memorial (Created by: J
Record added: Jul 16, 2014
Find A Grave Memorial# 132902971) was incorrect and is no longer an active member of Find A Grave. I do not know how I can get these memorials transferred to me so I can put in accurate information from documents. I can't send an edit request because this person won't answer. How can I get the correct information input?
These are my relatives and I am working in conjunction with my cousin, Marilyn, who is a direct descendant of Roscoe, to enter the factual information into Find A Grave and
He may not have a headstone.
If not, could you find out how to get him a military one baed on the following link: If I need to call the cemetery to get this process started lease let me know.

Thank you so very much!
