Mourners gathered at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills neighbourhood, less than a mile from the Warner Brothers studio where the show was shot. It also serves as the final resting place for many Hollywood celebrities, including Michael Jackson, Lucille Ball, and Elizabeth Taylor.

Perry, who played wise-cracking Chandler Bing on “Friends” from 1994 to 2004, was found dead in his Los Angeles home, generating an outpouring of grief from fans and fellow celebrities.

The five surviving co-stars of the show paid tribute on Monday to their fallen castmate in a joint message lamenting his death as an “unfathomable loss.”

Media including TMZ and the New York Post’s Page Six reported Friday’s event, posting long-distance and aerial photographs of people in attendance.

According to TMZ, all five “Friends” co-stars – Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer – were present.

Perry’s father, John Bennett Perry, and stepfather, Keith Morrison, were also present, according to Page Six.

According to TMZ, approximately 20 people dressed in black attended and gathered around a burial plot.

Forest Hills did not respond to a request for confirmation from Reuters.

The cast members of “Friends” issued a joint statement on Tuesday, saying they were “utterly devastated by the loss,” adding that they would have more to say later.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of Perry’s death after an autopsy and toxicology tests are completed.

Perry died one year after the publication of his memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” which detailed his decades-long battle with prescription painkiller and alcohol addiction. Perry stated at the time that he had been sober for about 18 months.
