In 1892, the cemetery was forced out of San Francisco and the thirty five thousand (35,000) buried at Laurel Hill were moved to Cypress Lawn in Daly City.

In doing so San Francisco relinquished a part of its own history for those buried at Laurel Hill during the second half of the nineteenth century, beginning in 1854, were true pioneers of the early West and although some had been moved individually by their families earlier, most were ultimately buried in vaults under a grass-covered mound that bears a memorial to their achievements.

In June of 1901 and unknown number of bodies from Laurel Hill were moved to the Japanese Cemetery in Colma.

In 1901 an unknown number of bodies were moved from Laurel Hill Cemetery in San Francisco were moved to the Serbian Cemetery in Colma.
