The Orange County Cemetery District is an independent special district governed by an appointed Board of Trustees who serve four-year terms.
The three cemeteries owned and operated by the District are among the county’s oldest and most established, with each having recorded burials prior to 1900.
Although privately owned in the beginning, the cemeteries were formed into separate independent districts in 1926. In 1985 the districts were consolidated under one governing board to create the Orange County Cemetery District. Their boundaries encompass the entire county of Orange and include cemetery locations in Anaheim, Lake Forest and Santa Ana.
