Reedley Cemetery Pavilion

Our Mission Statement:

To provide a final resting place for loved ones in a dignified and caring manner.  To provide a cost effective burial that meets the cultural, economic requirements, and social needs of all residents.  To care for the upkeep and maintenance of the cemetery grounds so that it is a serene setting for loved ones visiting graves.  To preserve the beauty, tranquility and heritage of the cemetery while growing with the community.


The first Reedley Cemetery burials occurred in 1862.  The Reedley Cemetery Association was started on December 8, 1891 and then was replaced by a vote of the people to become a public District Cemetery in June of 1941.  The District covers 107 sq. miles in Fresno County and 11 sq. miles in Tulare County for a total of 75,666 acres.  The District is in Fresno and Tulare Counties and includes the City of Reedley. 

Public Cemetery Districts finance their services through property taxes, the sale of interment rights, charges for opening and closing of the burial rights space, outer burial containers, disinterment, and monument setting fees.  The Reedley Cemetery District is an Endowment Care District.  The purpose of Endowment Care funds is to provide for the future maintenance and care of the Cemetery if and when it becomes full.

The Board of Trustees meetings are held at 7:00 pm on the third Monday of the month at the Cemetery District office.  Trustees are appointed by the the Fresno County Supervisor for District 4.  Appointments are for a 4 year term.  The Board of Trustees and the District follow the rules of the Brown Act.
