Visited Mount Carmel Cemetery for genealogy research, and I really enjoyed driving around and seeing the vast number of elaborate mausoleums and headstones here. All the big Chicago gangsters are buried here, too. If you visit, do get out and look around at the mausoleums....More

Was reading the new Al Capone book and staying nearby on business. Easy access off Roosevelt road. The grave site is located just inside the entrance to the right in section 35.

Beautiful Cemetary with clean areas and well kept grass. Staff very helpful and answered all my questions. Just wish, they would not take off decorations so soon.

Yes it has graves of Chicago mobsters like Capone, also really interesting was that a large percentage of the headstones had old black and white photos on them.
