Evergreen Cemetery is a cemetery, crematorium and mausoleum located in Oakland, California, near the Eastmont Town Center and Mills College. The cemetery was established in 1903 and is located on a small hill, with a large combined mausoleum, crematorium and chapel at the top of the hill. It is the second largest cemetery in Oakland, after the Mountain View Cemetery and Saint Mary Cemetery complex. It is full, and closed to new interments, but still operates a crematorium.

More than 400 unclaimed bodies of the Jonestown mass suicide are buried at Evergreen. In 2011, four additional memorial plaques were placed at the site with the names of all 918 people who died in the incident. The new memorial controversially includes the name of Jim Jones, the leader who ordered the mass suicide. The organizers intended the memorial to be "for historical purposes, listing everyone who died there," including the news reporters and Rep. Leo Ryan.,_California)

This cemetery is located on 6450 Camden Street, Oakland, Alameda County, California.
