This list of cemeteries in California includes currently operating, historical (closed for new interments), and defunct (graves abandoned or removed) cemeteries, columbaria, and mausolea. It does not include pet cemeteries. Selected interments are given for notable people. Some Southern California counties have a high number of motion picture and television star gravesites, due to those industries being concentrated there.
