From Oakwood Memorial Park Cemetery:

The Oakwood Memorial Park Cemetery is located at 22601 Lassen Street, Chatsworth, Los Angeles, California. It is the resting place for several movie stars such as Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gloria Grahame, and Stephen Boyd.

Oakwood Memorial Park is located in the San Fernando Valley, surrounded by rocky hills that have served as a backdrop for many a film setting. It has been used as a cemetery since 1924, and there was a Native American graveyard next to the cemetery before a fire destroyed the old wooden crosses that marked the site. The Old Stagecoach Trail passed beside it. The historic Chatsworth Community Church is located within the cemetery grounds.

About the Oakwood Memorial Park Cemetery Project

This page was created for Oakwood Memorial Park to document our ancestors that are interred there, it is managed by the California Cemeteries Team, part of the Global Cemeteries Project.

To assist our Cemeterists in this ongoing project, there is a Table of Interments at the bottom of this page. This is a sort-able listing of individuals interred at this cemetery, some of whom are linked to existing WikiTree profiles. Although all grave markers in this cemetery are being photographed, the photos can only be displayed for individuals with existing WikiTree profiles.

If you know of a person interred at this cemetery that should be linked to an existing WikiTree profile, or needs to have a profile created for them, please contact Laurel Beebe for assistance, or one of the Cemeterists for the California Cemeteries Team.
