Salinas, CA 93907
Established in 1964 by Monsignor Thomas Earley, this cemetery was originally opened as the parish cemetery for Sacred Heart Church in Salinas. The 30 acre site, with approximately 12 developed acres, offers a majestic view of the Salinas Valley. With its beautifully landscaped environment and recent plant renovations, Queen of Heaven is the most attractive cemetery in the county.
While still meeting the needs of the local parishes, Queen of Heaven also serves the needs of much of the community in the greater Salinas area.
