Rosedale Cemetery, located at 1831 W. Washington Blvd., is one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles. Founded in 1884 and still in use today, the cemetery is the final resting place of over 700 Civil War soldiers, many buried in a large plot set aside for members of the Grand Army of the Republic.
In 1940, the DAR was given permission to copy the office records for burials in Rosedale, from its opening through the year 1895. After copying these records, the workers went into the cemetery and copied all headstones of those buried before 1906. When they encountered a family plot or headstone, they transcribed all the names and information. For this reason, several burials are included that occurred up to 1940.
Where possible, ancillary information has been added to enrich the quality of the data. Information from Los Angeles County death records, as well as suggested family relationships, are included. Content may include name, birth date, birth place, age, death date, death place, burial date, remarks and burial information. The directory includes approximately 4500 entries.
