ANGELUS - ROSEDALE CEMETERY INTRODUCTION AND INDEX
Los Angeles, CA 90007-1151
Rosedale Cemetery was founded in 1884, when Los Angeles was a small city of only a few thousand people. To this day, its grounds are beautiful and surprisingly removed from the noise and distractions of the city.
Rosedale was the first cemetery in Los Angeles open to all races and creeds, and the first to use the new approach of design called “lawn cemeteries…where nature and art conspire to surround the burial places of the dead with beautiful trees and flowers, natural scenery and works of monumental art.”
The people buried in Rosedale include members of leading families and pioneers who helped make history in this community and state. They are men and women who achieved great success and had a conspicuous place in the founding of Los Angeles and its institutions.
Rosedale Cemetery is now owned and operated by the Angelus Funeral Home, Inc. It is still an active cemetery.
These files are a partial transcription of tombstones. It will be up-dated quarterly.
