Owner description: This cemetery marks the final resting place for many of the city's most famous residents, including Frank Sinatra.
Reviewed 31 December 2011

We're big Sinatra fans, so there was no better place to pay our respects. Didn't see any bottles of Jack or much in the way of flowers at the grave. We managed to get a map showing the plot number from the very helpful Palm Springs Tourist Information Office.

Very moving and worth the trip. We'd come all this way and it was only a few minutes out of our day.

God Bless you Sir.

Like most southern California cemeteries, the monuments are rather plain. But as the previous reviewer mentioned there are a number of famous interments here for cemetery buffs to view.

Head out on Ramon Road towards Cathedral City, and you come across a little known site.

The last resting place of Frank Sinatra, Sonny Bono as well as the Mother and Sister of Zsa Zsa Gabor. Busby Berkeley and "My Fair Lady" composer Frederick Loewe.

It also contains the only (I think) Gay Veterans Memorial in the US.

Such a peaceful site - and so simple when compared to the Hollywood cemeteries. All of the graves have a simple plaque, rather than the fantastic Hollywood memorials. Sinatra's is usually marked with a small American flag and a few flowers.
