The Camulos Cemetery is a private cemetery on private property on the north side of Highway 126 on the 1,800-acre Camulos Ranch, which is an active agribusiness (Camulos Ranch LLC).

The cemetery is surrounded by orchards in fields leased by tenant farmers and is thus off-limits to the public (2019).

It is here that the onetime owner of 48,000 acres of the Santa Clarita Valley, Ygnacio del Valle (1808-1880), was interred in an above-ground coffin or vault as seen in the closeup view below. In 1905 Ygnacio's widow Ysabel is said to have had his body exhumed and moved to Calvary Cemetery in Los Angeles, where Ysabel was ultimately laid to rest in the same coffin.

7½x9½-inch photographic prints, n.d.; probably very early 1900s.
