Malcolm X grave.

Ferncliff Cemetery and Mausoleum

Toto, I've a feeling Dorothy's not in New York anymore. Judy Garland's remains were removed to Hollywood Forever Cemetery in January 2017 to accommodate future family entombments; adjoining slots weren't abundant at Ferncliff, evidently. Ed Sullivan, Malcolm X, "Moms" Mabley, and other notables have stayed put.

Joan Crawford interred here.

Ferncliff Cemetery and Mausoleum

Final resting place of many notable people, including Joan Crawford, Judy Garland, Ed Sullivan and Malcolm X. Staff is very friendly and helpful, and will provide maps and directions to the people you are interested in visiting.
