Long Description:
At the time Melrose Abbey was established in 1929, Orange County was completely covered by orange groves and truck farms. The founders commissioned Laguna Beach architect, Richard Haley, to create a unique mausoleum building which would forever identify the Abbey. There is, incidentally, a “Melrose Abbey” in Scotland which the architect used as a model.

In the early days the chapel was used more for weddings than for funerals. Many funeral services have been held in the chapel for people who were married in the Abbey Chapel earlier. Over three quarters of a century provides a heritage of business which will make any mortuary-cemetery a success.
