Rose Hills Memorial Park, Whittier, Los Angeles, California



 


Notes: Located at 3888 Workman Mill Road, Whittier, CA.
Rose Hills Memorial Park is the largest cemetery in the United States established in 1914, and is located in Whittier, California. It is owned and operated by Service Corporation International (formerly, Loewen Group).
In 1917, a small indoor mausoleum named "The Whittier Heights Mausoleum" was built and became known as "Mausoleum 1", only the second indoor mausoleum in California, which was opened on the grounds of the then Whittier Heights Cemetery. In 1929, construction began on the first phase of the El Portal de la Paz (Doorway to Peace) mausoleum.
Four garden mausoleums (Terrace of Memories, Court of Eternal Light, Mausoleum of the Valley, and Lakeview Mausoleum) and four chapels (Rainbow Chapel, Hillside Chapel, Memorial Chapel, and SkyRose Chapel) were also built.
In 1942, Rose Hills completed the installation of its crematorium, and in 1956 Rose Hills Mortuary and Flower Shop were opened, making Rose Hills one of the first cemeteries in the country to offer all the necessary services and facilities for memorialization. Also in 1956, Hillside Chapel and Sky Church were completed. Sky Church was destroyed by the Whittier earthquake of 1987. Rose Hills employs approximately 600 employees.
