I love the history, the architecture, the beauty, and mostly the serenity of a cemetery, especially Hollywood Forever where I've been visiting for 33 years. I enjoy fulfilling photo requests at this cemetery the most. Currently Hollywood Forever has over 89,000 graves; their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. |
I'm retired due to a disability and spend much of my time at Hollywood Forever. I've had a lot of enjoyment photographing graves and folks seem to like my photos. It makes me feel useful! I claim many photo requests as I check the site several times a day. If you'd like to fulfill a particular request that I've claimed, just send me a public message and I'd be happy to unclaim it.
I am an amateur photographer, not a genealogist, so please don't lecture me about my lack of commitment to your hobby. You do your thing and I will do mine and it will be a happy happy sunshine world!
I've been seeing more and more requests for photos without any grave location information. Trust me, 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.
Please allow any cemetery enough time to respond to a location request. Realistically, finding grave locations is not a priority in the day to day operation of an active cemetery. And remember, it always helps to be nice!

|Miracle Mile Tim||RE: Alan Sues # 81438892|
Since the Alan Sues memorial has "famous" designation, I no longer have control over the entry. When I created it, I do not believe that I listed his final resting place at all. It is likely that another contributor contacted the administrators and said that Alan was buried at Hollywood Hills.
Your hunch that he was cremated at that location only and interred elsewhere is a possibility; other possibilities include that "Sues" is his stage name, and that he is interred under his birth name. In addition, Forest Lawn is known for zealously guarding the location of an interment location is that is the wish of the family. For example, many gravers believe that Annette Funicello is interred at the Hollywood Hills location, but no one has yet been able to verify this info.

I see......ok, thanks Jim....good to know.
|Gloria Tune||RE: John Frank Bailey|
I very much appreciate your efforts. I did get the location info from the cemetery, but will double check to make certain I didn't write it down incorrectly.
Again, thanks very much for your work here,
Thank you for photos of Wilbert Allen.

When you get a chance, would you see if Velma ashes are resting at Hollywood Forever? She was cremated there but not sure about the ashes. She was the wife of screen writer Paul Velma Yawitz.
Thanks!!! (So glad it has cooled off a bit!)
