3301 E. 1st Street, Boyle Heights, California 90063
Phone: (323) 268-5111
Working with Chapel of the Pines Crematory, this facility cares for the indigent. Unclaimed remains are cremated, stored individually for several years, and then buried in a common grave by year group. All lookups are researched from large handwritten ledgers. If you have a death certificate that indicates the person was sent to the Los Angeles County Crematory, and have the cremation date (usually much later than the date of death), staff will gladly confirm final disposition. In most cases, that will be in which common year grave the cremains were buried, but occasionally they will find that cremains were sent elsewhere for scattering or interment.[1]
