Began in 1914 on land that was once part of the famous Rancho Paso de Bartolo Spanish land grant, Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier, California has since grown from a mere 18 acres to over 1,500. Now considered the largest memorial park in the world, Rose Hills Memorial Park's commitment to excellence and personalized service positions the park as a well sought after final resting place in the beautiful Southern California area.
Tucked away in the Puente Hills at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains, Rose Hills Memorial Park understands the importance of commemorating a person's unique life. With this in mind, Rose Hills offers four beautiful chapels: Hillside Chapel, Memorial Chapel, Rainbow Chapel, and the world renowned SkyRose Chapel. Also, Rose Hill (while a non-denominational cemetery) provides designated areas for various religions for those wishing to be buried in a religious specific location. These sites include the Covenant Lawn for the Jewish faith, Trinity Lawn for Catholics, Desert Lawn for Mormons, Lutheran Lawn for Lutherans and a portion of Cedarcrest Lawn for the Islamic faith. Besides its five chapels and religious resting grounds, Rose Hills also offers a mortuary, crematory, flower shop, reception center, and the Pageant of Roses Garden, the site of North America's only international rose trials.
Rose Hills Memorial Park is but a short drive away from Los Angeles and the Orange County area yet it feels miles away from the outside world. Within its gates lies a peaceful quiet; a special place honoring those who are in repose. Rose Hills Memorial Park is a nature-filled sanctuary dedicated to recognizing and memorializing the beautiful lives of the departed and providing a special place for family and friends to visit.
