Placentia - Dermot McGettigan Memorial Cemetery

This modern cemetery is located along the side of the highway in Southeast Placentia. It is a relatively new cemetery and one of three Catholic cemeteries in the town of Placentia. It is owned by Maher's Funeral Home Ltd., which is located in Placentia. This cemetery is carefully designed for ease of access. All headstones are mounted on parallel rows of concrete footings, separated by well manicured lawns. Trees and shrubs line the paved driveway through the center of the cemetery.

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.
