Search Cypress Lawn Memorial Park:

In 1892, when Laurel Hill Cemetery (formerly Lone Mountain Cemetery) was forced out of San Francisco, the thirty five thousand (35,000) buried at Laurel Hill were moved to Cypress Lawn and in doing so San Francisco relinquished a part of its own history. Those buried at Laurel Hill during the second half of the nineteenth century, beginning in 1854, were true pioneers of the early West and although some had been moved individually by their families earlier, most were ultimately buried in vaults under a grass-covered mound that bears a memorial to their achievements. Removal of San Francisco’s Laurel Hill Cemetery remains begins in 1939.
