New Calvary Cemetery
The first Calvary Cemetery for Roman Catholics was established on North Broadway; when the new Calvary Cemetery was established on Whittier Boulevard in 1896, most of the bodies interred on the first site were moved. Cathedral High School was built on the grounds of the old burial site, and its athletic teams became known as the "Phantoms."
New Calvary Cemetery is located at 4201 Whittier Boulevard in East Los Angeles. It is bounded by 3rd Street, Eastern Avenue,Downey Street, and Whittier Boulevard. Adjacent to it is Home of Peace, a Jewish cemetery and Mount Zion Cemetery, also Jewish.
Among the notables buried here are Edward Doheny, Lou Costello, Ethel Barrymore, Lionel Barrymore, John Hodiak, Henry T. Gage, Henry Dalton, and Raymond Novarro. There is a crypt for John Barrymore, but he is buried in Philadelphia.
