Holy Cross Cemetery Tour

Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City

We recently visited Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California where many classic film stars of the Catholic faith are buried. We didn't have a lot of time to go searching for gravestones but did find a few. Interesting thing about this cemetery is that there are very few upright gravestones. Most of them were flat and very non-descript. Rosalind Russell's was the most prominent. There is also a chapel with a mausoleum and crypts. I have a phobia of entering spaces like that so I wasn't able to see much before I had to leave. We did get to pay our respects to quite a few stars. Here are the gravestones we visited:
