Since its founding in 1906, Forest Lawn has been an integral part of the community it serves. Our Founder, Dr. Hubert Eaton, profoundly changed the funeral business by transforming Forest Lawn Memorial-Park into a place for the living. By combining the mortuary and cemetery sides of the business, Eaton achieved his goal, making Forest Lawn a beautiful setting for services, weddings, baptisms, and family excursions. After 100 years of service, the Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks remain a place for the living and a true community resource.
