AFTER THE SERVICE
We realize that losing a loved one is a difficult time for you and your family. We want you to be able to focus on what’s most important during the time you are planning the service.
Marker/headstone installation rules.
Markers/headstones are required for all burial lots. When you make plans for burial the city collects a marker setting fee. At the time of burial, a temporary marker will be installed. The amount of money assessed for a permanent Zillah marker will be credited toward the installation of a commercial headstone if it is made available for installation within 60 days from the date of the burial. After 60 days from the date of burial, if a commercial headstone is not received by the city, the cemetery sexton, will set a Zillah permanent grave marker. When that permanent marker is set, the fee you paid becomes nonrefundable. if you or your family plan to purchase a commercial headstone, you need to do so within 60 days of the date of burial so that a permanent marker is not placed. If there are circumstances that exist that are beyond your control, an additional 30 days will be permitted for making the commercial headstone available. If that is the case, please contact Zillah City Hall at 509-829-5151 so that we can work with you.
