Cemetery

Payments

All payments for Burial Plots can be handled at City Hall with the City Secretary. Other ways to pay are by credit card or you can mail your payments to Cleveland City Hall’s address to the attention of the City Secretary.  There is a $2.50 fee to use a credit card.  Your receipt will be mailed or emailed to you.  You will need to call in to use the credit card as we don’t currently have an options for online payments for cemetery plots. We offer installment plans if you purchase more than one lot at a time. Contact the City Secretary’s office for more details.

Teleconference meeting

We can offer Zoom (teleconference) meetings with the City Secretary’s office during this closed office time.  Just call 281-592-2667 or email asmith@clevelandtexas.com or jjeude@clevelandtexas.com for more details.  You will need access to a smartphone, tablet or computer to use the video feature and to download the app - Zoom Cloud Meetings. It is a helpful feature if there needs to be more than one person that needs input.  There is no cost involved with this service.
