GLENDALE, CALIF. (AP) - A police spokesman says a small funeral service will be held for Elizabeth Taylor at a Southern California cemetery famous for being the final resting place for Hollywood celebrities.

Glendale police spokesman Tom Lorenz says Forest Lawn Cemetery officials called to request police assistance for the 2 p.m. Thursday service.

Lorenz says about four dozen family members are expected to attend the funeral, and there will be no procession for the screen legend.

Taylor died early Wednesday of congestive heart failure at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical center, where she had been hospitalized for about six weeks.

The cemetery is the final resting place for Taylor’s good friend Michael Jackson and other stars like Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, W.C. Fields, Red Skelton, Gracie Allen, Walt Disney and Nat King Cole.
