Coachella Valley Public Cemetery District

“An Endowment Care District”

Welcome to the Coachella Valley Public Cemetery District. Our goal is to provide our community with exceptional service, maintaining our cemetery as a dignified and respectful resting place for loved ones.

The Coachella Valley Public Cemetery District is an independent California Special District formed in 1927.  The District serves the public cemetery needs of an area encompassing nearly 3,444 square miles of Riverside County, including the cities of Coachella, Indio, La Quinta, Indian Wells, Palm Desert, as well as parts of Rancho Mirage and unincorporated Riverside County.  The purpose of the District is to offer affordable interment services for our County residents.

This website can be used to locate loved ones, access information about upcoming interment services, special events and District policy, as well as schedule an appointment with staff. If you are unable to find the information you require, please reach out to us during office hours and we will be happy to assist you.

District offices will be closed on Monday, February 19th, in observance of George Washington’s Birthday.

There will be no mowing the week of February 12th (2/13 & 2/15) for Valentine’s Day.

On February 14th, the cemetery closing time will adjust to 6:00 p.m. and remain at that time through March 12th. Cemetery closing times adjust throughout the year to match seasonal sundown.

As we enter the coldest part of our winter season, please be aware of the potential for frost conditions at the cemetery in the morning hours. Hazardous frost conditions can make grass, headstones, and other hard surfaces icy and pose a slip and fall hazard to those visiting. Cemetery management recommends avoiding these surfaces when frost conditions exist.

The City of Indio, in cooperation with the County of Riverside, is planning road construction on Avenue 52 directly in front of the cemetery the week of February 5th. (2/5-2/9). Due to this construction, access to the cemetery may be delayed or restricted during that week. We strongly recommend that all memorial items left on grounds be picked up no later than Sunday, February 4th that week. If you wait until later in the week, you may not be able to access the grounds to retrieve your items when you arrive.  ***UPDATE*** The District has received notification that the road construction on Avenue 52 directly in front of the cemetery that was previously scheduled for the week of February 5th (2/5-2/9) has been delayed. The new (projected) dates of construction are February 13th and 14th. The District will continue to supply updates as we receive them from the City of Indio and Riverside County.
