Memorial Chapel

Imagine a beautifully designed, postmodern masterpiece with spires so tall they touch the cotton candy skies of a Los Angeles sunset. Picture a building so grand that it appears to reach up toward the heavens. This is Rose Hills Memorial Chapel. Situated atop a softly rolling hillside among lush gardens with breathtaking views of the San Gabriel Valley, Memorial Chapel presents a serene space for meaningful remembrance and reflection.

Built in 1964 as a memorial to the late John D. Gregg—son of Rose Hills' founder Augustus Gregg—Memorial Chapel is an impressive sight from the moment you enter Rose Hills Memorial Park through Gate 1. With views of its three 90-foot spires from afar, you are immediately drawn to the striking presence and contemporary appeal of Memorial Chapel.

Hosting memorial services, funerals and visitations for all cultures and faiths, Rose Hills Memorial Chapel has large windows that provide awe-inspiring views of the Southern California landscape.

It is fully equipped with audio/visual capabilities for personalized multimedia presentations and music. A private family room is available for families and loved ones to gather in a separate, more private setting that accommodates up to 20 guests.
