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 non-refundable. If you or your family plan to purchase a commercial headstone, you must do so within 60 days of the burial date so that a permanent marker is not placed.  If circumstances are beyond your control, an additional 30 days will be permitted to make the commercial headstone available.  If that is the case, don't hesitate to get in touch with Zillah City Hall at 509-829-5151 so we can work with you.

Ornamental/floral regulations. 
The city maintenance crew works hard to maintain the cemetery grounds.  To facilitate that maintenance process, please be aware and adhere to the following regulations regarding ornaments, objects, toys, flags, and floral arrangements for placement on lots/gravesites. 

  • No boxes, shells, pinwheels, metal toys, wood toys, plastic toys, chairs, settees, glass objects of any kind, wood ornaments, or similar objects may be placed on a lot/gravesite.
  • No more than two flower arrangements may be placed on each lot/gravesite. Said flower arrangements must be placed in a permanent vase, a temporary vase placed next to the marker/headstone, or may be laid on the marker/headstone itself.
  • In addition to flower arrangements, there may be placed on or adjacent to the marker/headstone no more than two flags (not to exceed three feet in height), two balloons, and one stuffed animal or doll adjacent to the headstone/marker.
  • Artificial flowers are only permitted between November 1st and March 1st.
  • No food, beverages, or beverage containers may be placed on a lot/gravesite.
  • No ornaments or floral arrangements may be placed upon an unused gravesite or lot.
Said rules and regulations shall apply throughout the year except for Memorial Day weekend (Thursday through Monday), Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. On these days, and for one week after a burial, there will be no limit to the number of flowers, balloons, and/or flags placed on a lot/gravesite, and stuffed animals will also be permitted.
