Chapel of the Pines
My son enjoys going to find graves of 1950s & 1960s actors- Last year we went to Chapel of the Pines - Of course there is No map - nothing on the internet to help you locate anyone- We rang the bell there several times for help and no one came- No one was around ( but the doors were open). This time we rang the bell again and 30 min later a man came up and said we had to call Kimberley with Pierce Bros. and she will get back to us with locations of graves- She said she had to look in a book?? We are not sure how long it will take - She works at the mortuary on Washington St in Los Angeles. Chapel of the Pines is huge- there is so much history there- it's sad it is not better managed.

Good luck with these requests. I was there recently and was able to obtain a few famous grave photos, only by exploring on my own. The owners are VERY difficult to work with and will most likely ask you to leave. It is required that you are a family member. Good luck!!!!

Chapel of the Pines
Hi Tom, I'm heading to California in April and would like to gain access to the building to pay respects to some relatives. I noticed you had helped some people in the past. Can you tell me if it's easy to gain access once you go there and talk to someone? Do you know if there is someone in an office during the week that can help or would I need to call someone beforehand? Thanks for anything you can tell me.

RE: Dorothea Anderson
When I wrote the note checkmarked to remove the request. Perhaps that is why you don't see it now. But it was there and had a long note attached that had nothing to do with Dorothea. It had to do with problems getting locations of burials in a columbarium in California. Ring any bells?

Paul Darley
Thank you for the contacts, I'll write a letter to them about Paul Darley's locations and when I get his locations, I'll let you know.

Well, I got a call back this evening from the crematoria and they said they do not know what happened to his ashes but they did have a written record of his "arrival". They took a photo of the record and sent texted it to me. I added it to the Find A Grave memorial. And I took the photo request off.

Thank you so much for your help.

The information that you gave me for the mortuary was great. I called and someone answered the phone! I gave the information to the gentleman and he said that he will give the information to Kimberly Bryant who is in charge of location memorials. He said it might take awhile since it was almost 100 years ago ... I don't think their paperwork is in order so who knows .... :-)

I'm retired ... tempted to go down there an look for the information myself :-)

Hi Tom,

I surely do appreciate all your help regarding my photo requests and will try to contact Mr. Lee and see what he can tell me. I will let you know later. We have a couple cemeteries here in OH that have that same policy where only immediate family members are allowed the location information.

Thanks again.
