Los Osos Valley Memorial Park

Los Osos, San Luis Obispo County




This Private Cemetery and Mortuary is located on Los Osos Valley Road a couple of miles east of the center of the town of Los Osos.

The Cemetery begun interments in about 1964. There is a large Mausoleum, Memorial Walls that contain Plaques, two Veteran's sections, a Masonic Section, a Jewish section as well as the traditional sections. There is also a Columbarium. External Cremains Vaults and a Scattering Garden.

The San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society obtained permission to photograph the headstones The photographing process was begun in October 2007 and completed in mid December 2007. A database is being created from the data on the headstones.

My thanks to Phoebe Adams, Pat Bunyard, Shanda Gibbs & John Sharp who volunteered their time to take the photographs and to Betty McElhill for doing Social Security lookups for missing Dates of Death.

This is a very large Cemetery, and since it is new in comparison to other Cemeteries in
San Luis Obispo County, it does not have historic significance as such. There are military burials, but no Veterans beyond World War I. The headstones are all flat and there are a few memorial benches.

A Map and General photos are linked to this Site as well as alphabetical indexes. A word about the Cemetery Index: Because of privacy issues, SLOCGS does not have access to the Interment Records, thus the Master Index was created from data on the Headstone.

The Indexes contain Name, Date of Birth and Date of Death and are searchable pdf files.


Additionally, the SLOCGS Society can do Obituary and Death Certificate searches and transcriptions - there is a fee for this process.



The Index can be found here in fully searchable pdf format.

Headstone Images are available as an attachment to an email.



All of the photos and databases that are contained on this site and in linked directories are watermarked and are the property of SLOCGS [San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society, POB 4, Atascadero,  San Luis Obispo, California]. The headstone photos may be used for personal genealogical purposes and none other.
