In consequence, the sculpture has become a fertility symbol. His lips are kissed, the genital area is rubbed and flowers are left in his hat. In 2005 a fence was erected around his tomb to prevent people rubbing the said area, as this was damaging the sculpture, but it has subsequently been removed.

Did Jim Morrison's remains get moved from Pere LaChaise in Paris to California?

Yes, apparently so, just back from Paris (12 Nov 2011) and visited the cemetery Pere LaChaise basically to see the grave of Jim Morrison and after I saw it I bumped into a rather eccentric cemetery staff member at the Oscar Wilde grave which was getting refurbished & would be open on 16 Nov 2011, who said he had worked there for roughly about 20 odd years, the staff member said that Jim Morrison's remains had been moved to Miami in 1998, after complaints from his family and his common law wife's family, because of the way that the grave was being disrespected by his 'fans', leaving cigarettes, beer and chipping bits of his gravestone off as souvenirs, I was completely shocked when he said that, it's the first time I heard it ever!!

How do you find the names of people buried in a certain cemetery?

The most direct way to find out who is buried in a particular cemetery is to go to the cemetery office when they are open, or phone them, and ask whether a particular person is buried there. A letter request can also be mailed, and some cemeteries will also obtain a photo of a limited number of grave stones, sometimes at a nominal fee, if asked.. Most offices are happy to look up a few names, but are not staffed to check a large number, or to provide a list of everyone there. However, more and more cemeteries are making lists of their burials available in the internet, so the office can be asked about that. Their hope is that those who find a relative will be interested in paying to support continuing care of the grave site.. In addition, local genealogy societies often obtain cemetery lists, or create them, and make them available to members or on the internet. And some ethnic groups are compiling country-wide and world-wide lists of the burials of members of their groups, including names and locations.. Finally, it is possible to walk smaller cemeteries, or sections of larger cemeteries and make a list for yourself.

Why cant people who committed suicide be buried in church cemeteries?

Most likely because suicide is considered self murder. Also that some foolish self appointed Gods of the non compassionate religion thought that they were doing God's will. Suicide is a sin if the persons mind is sound at the time of the act, but who really knows why a person kills themselves?. Most are committed because the mind of the person is not stable at the time. What right has anyone to say that they cannot be given a proper burial in a church yard. Has any religion the right to judge a person who commits such an act. Let God be the judge, and give the unfortunate a proper burial.

What famous actor is buried in the Arlington National Cemetery?

Audie Murphy is buried in Arlington. He was the "most decorated soldier" of the US in WWII, earning over thirty awards and decorations, including the Medal of Honor and the Distinguished Service Cross. He became widely known through newspaper coverage of his exploits, and his baby-faced, boyish good looks led to Hollywood offers. He starred in about sixty movies, mostly westerns. He wrote a book about his war experiences, "To Hell and Back", which Universal turned into a movie in 1955, in which he played himself. This was Universal's top-grossing movie of all time, until they released "Jaws" in 1975, by which time the dollar was worth much less than it had been in 1955. Murphy died in a plane crash near Roanoke, Virginia in 1971. Despite all his success he was not a happy person, and probably suffered from post-traumatic stress syndrome, which had not been diagnosed by medical science while he was alive. He sometimes drank too much, gambled, and had to have a loaded pistol under his pillow to sleep. His marriage in the late 40s to a lovely young starlet lasted only a few months.
