Re: Where is Sun Ra buried?

Miguel,

Sun Ra's physical body is buried in Elmwood Cementary in Birmingham, Alabama (along with such notables as football coach Bear Bryant). Elmwood is a big cemetery, and confusingly laid out, so if you are planning to visit you should check with Joe Moudry or another Birmingham area fan who knows how to find the site (there is only a small stone tucked in among monuments belonging to several Greek families).

directions to Sun Ra's grave

Hopefully this can help folks looking for specific directions:  I scoured the cemetery a couple of years ago and finally found it.  Directions on my blog here: http://pelog.net/sun-ra/
