Placentia - Coombs Memorial Cemetery

Coombs Memorial Cemetery is a relatively new cemetery in the town of Placentia. It is owned and operated by the Coombs Funeral Home. This is a modern, meticulously groomed cemetery located in Southeast Placentia. It is easily accessible by car and is immediately adjacent to the main road as it leaves Placentia. The headstones are arranged systematically in rows, with the headstones mounted on a continuous concrete footing. The rows of headstones are separated by well manicured lawns.

These headstones were read, recorded and transcribed by FRANK KING and HEATHER KING, July 2000. While we have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
