RE: Re: Woodlawn Cemetery

I spent several hours at the cemetery on my last visit and located about a dozen different gravesites.

The Woodlawn cemetery is a bit run down and often there is noone in the office. Most of the grave stones are at grround level. It takes a little time to learn the layout and then find the gravesites.

The cemetery is located in Compton, CA which is just south of LA and has a reputation for being a troubled area. I have felt completly safe whenever I have been onsite. Of course they are only open from 8 am to 3 pm so lots of daylight.

I will be making another trip over there in the coming weeks and will let you know what I find.

Hi Sherry,

Yes, I had heard the same thing about this cemetery. Its sad that so many people's relatives are in this cemetery and then no one wants to go there because of the area.
Anyway, let me know if someone steps up to the plate. If not, I'll try to get over there in a couple of weeks.
You are welcome.... and take care,

Hi Sherry,

You are welcome. I do believe there is someone that does go to Woodlawn to take photos. If someone does not take photos in the next 2 weeks, I will see if I can get over there. I have not been to that particular cemetery yet. It is in Compton which is not a good area. I heard that some years ago it got run down, not sure if they got it cleaned up or not.
