Cemetery Maintenance and Records
Planning & Zoning
All grave spaces purchased, record keeping, burial arrangements, work orders, and complaints or questions are handled through the Planning and Zoning Department.
Grave Space Purchase
Grave spaces may be purchased by residents or non-residents. The cost for a non-resident is higher because the city of Tallmadge taxes are used to maintain and care for the Cemetery.
The Tallmadge Cemetery does not have a "Potter's Field" but indigent burials are performed as required by state law.
Work in the Cemetery is performed by the Street Department (clean up, digging of graves, foundations for monuments, etc.). An average of 60 - 70 burials are processed each year.

- Cremated remains may be placed on existing graves.
- No burial shall be permitted until the purchase price of the grave space has been paid in full.
- No burials on Sundays or Holidays.
