Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are volunteers assisting at Grand View Memorial Park in Glendale, CA.

You can read about some of the history and challenges at Grand View at

Initial records available for upload to FindAGrave contained only names and plot locations. We continue to work on updating birth/death dates for Grandview entries based on inquiries, photo requests, and ongoing research. We believe >99% of all Grand View interments have been added.

We are more than happy to update information or transfer pages to direct family members once we can confirm we have the person correctly identified. Since the original list we used to upload did not have birth/death dates, we will only transfer once those dates have been confirmed. If you are requesting transfer of a page that has not yet been updated, please provide the dates you believe are correct with your request. We will then be able to cross-check it against Lot Sheets for interment date consistency, as well as other online records.

To provide information or request a transfer, please use the "Suggest A Correction (SAC)" link, located on the Edit Tab (upper right corner) of the page in question.

NOTE: By using the new tools to add or edit information for the following items will ensure faster edits!

* Birth/death date, birth/death place
* Relationship (parent and spouse links)
* Name

Using the "Suggest other Corrections" option will send a message to our email that includes links to both the memorial page as well as your Contributor ID so we'll be sure to update or transfer the correct page. Don't forget to specify your relationship.

In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, transfer requests for pages that are outside FAQ Guidelines for required transfers will be considered on an individual basis.

RE: Jack Davison #47485440 Edward C Copeland
Thanks for the clarification. I wondered at finding what I thought to be a cemetery site for my former neighbor and fellow Naval Academy grad, as his obituary says that he was cremated by the Neptune Society, which I understand scatters ashes at sea. "Sdda" is a total stranger to me.

I did find an obituary and submitted it as additional information. I submitted a photo trquest but the Find A Grave response says that there are no photo volunteers in your neighborhood. I hope that it reaches you since you say that you take photos. I am asking Ed's USNA classmates and the Alumni Association for a scan of his 1954 Lucky Bag photo.

I got his dates from the SS Death Index, but submitted before I could enterhis death place as San Jose,Santa Clara County, California. I am still looking for his birth plsce and his obituary as a source for details. I am asking his USNA classmates for their help.

I am curious about the link (below) where you have a James Coleman born in 1915 linked as a son of James Coleman 1851-1933 and Mary Delina Fraser Person 1850-1928. I have records that show a James Jr. being born to James Sr and Mary but he was born in the 1870's I believe. This James Coleman was born too late to have Mary as his mother since she would have been 65 when he was born. I was wondering if James Sr had a second wife and named a second son James as well. His first son James died at 7 yrs of age and is buried in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Just curious.

Birth: 1915
Death: Dec. 30, 1956

Thank you so much for the pictures of the headstones and the fast fulfilment of the request. I fulfill requests up here in Canada so know the time it takes and really appreciate it.

My Mabel Brown's spouse was Arthur Ethbert Brown not George Brown. So the Chapel of the Pines is not my Mabel Brown's burial place either!
