Birth of a Cemetery: Forest Lawn Memorial-Park by John F. Llewellyn
I, David, once worked for a perpetual care cemetery. I found then that it was much more complicated than most would believe. Even to someone who has worked in the industry, Birth of a Cemetery: Forest Lawn Memorial-Park by John F. Llewellyn makes for some very enlightening reading.
The business student in me was entertained by the convoluted ways they structured three different companies to reach one goal.
It was an eye-opening experience to read about what went into the purchase of a crematory. Readers are told how some of the people involved in Forest Lawn took their duties to the families super seriously, while others squabbled like kids on a school ground.
This was a very interesting book and would make great reading for anyone studying business, business law, history, or Funeral Industry science.
Birth of a Cemetery is well-written and amazingly researched. It is very entertaining and informative. We give it all five stars.
