Inglewood Park Cemetery is a tranquil haven nestled in the bustling suburb of Inglewood, which lies southeast of Los Angeles, California. This stunning cemetery, one of the oldest in the state, is known for its beautiful structures, meticulously maintained grounds and dedication to providing the best care possible during a difficult time.
Set amid 340 lush green acres, Inglewood Park Cemetery was established in 1905 by a group of businessmen who saw the need for future interment space in the yet sparsely populated region. Interred within the cemetery grounds are many original settlers of the Centinela Valley and the South Bay region. Along with many prominent local, national and international figures, the cemetery serves as the final resting place for several Civil War veterans, as well as former Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley and world-famous entertainer Ella Fitzgerald.
Easy to access from the I-110 Harbor Freeway and the I-405 San Diego Freeway, Inglewood Park Cemetery features beautiful venues for memorial services such as the elegant Grace Chapel, as well as gardens, lakes and impressive statuary. With its full service cemetery, mortuary and cremation and florist facilities, Inglewood Park Cemetery can assist with every need during the loss of a loved one. Future plans for the cemetery will continue to create lovely and peaceful places for those seeking comfort. In addition, an well-tended Endowment Care Fund exists that will insure the perpetual care of the cemetery for years to come.
