Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks & Mortuaries

Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks & Mortuaries is an American not-for-profit corporation that owns and operates a chain of cemeteries and mortuaries in Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties in Southern California. The company was founded by a group of San Francisco businessmen in 1906. Doctor Hubert Eaton assumed management control in 1917 and is credited with being Forest Lawn's "founder" because of his origination of the "memorial-park" plan. The first location was in Tropico which later became part of Glendale, California. Its facilities are officially known as "memorial parks". The parks are best known for the large number of celebrity burials, especially in the Glendale and Hollywood Hills locations.
