In this cemetery were laid to rest many early pioneers of Contra Costa County. Many were drawn to California by gold, but fulfilled their dreams for a better life in other ways. The first recorded burials at the old cemetery, entered in the City of Martinez death register, was 1854. However, it is believed that burials occurred as early as 1851.
Donations will go to the Cemetery for improvements. The City of Martinez will be updating the list of people buried at the Alhambra Cemetery. Needed are the correct spellings and anyone known to be omitted from our records. Please call Patty Lorick at 925-372-3551 to add or correct a name.
