We would like to thank Gloria for a wonderful job of performing Tahoma Cemetery lookups and posting the results here for the past ten years.... over 9,000 burial records.

Tahoma Cemetery is active and contains over 33,000 burials. It is located at 1802 Tahoma Ave., Yakima, WA. It came about from the union of the City Cemetery and cemeteries established by the Masons, the Odd-Fellows and the GAR. Some early records fail to record actual gravesites. Some gravesites, especially in pauper areas, have disappeared and their plats lost. The cemetery is divided into sections,  Sections A, B, D and L being the more recent.  Sections and coding:

                        City - A, B, C, D, G, H. I, J, L.
                        F & AM - Masons (Free & Accepted Masons)
                        IOOF - Oddfellows
                        E - Military section
                        F - includes mostly GAR plots
                        K - plot 63 - Modern Woodmen of America - MWA
                        K - plot CC - Knights of Pythias - KP
                        K - plot DO - Eagles - FOE
