Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located on the corner of Natividad Rd. and East Laurel Dr.

This is a CLOSED (Fenced/Gated - No Trespassing Signs) county cemetery, where any access would be considered trespassing. I have checked with the county to see about obtaining access to record the burials, and I was promptly denied. Their stand is that the grave markers contain nothing more than a burial number. Anyone interested in obtaining information on these burials are directed to the Monterey County Recorder's Office to obtain a death certificate. Most of the early Monterey County death certificates were microfilmed and are available from the Church of Latter-Day Saints Family History Library.

This cemetery really is used only for the poor/indigent that cannot afford a burial. It also includes a huge number of John Doe and Jane Doe burials.

Ideally, this cemetery should not have the option of making a "Photo Request"
