Name of person is limited to 18 characters, including spaces

  • Inscription is limited to 23 spaces including spaces

As of June 1, 2015 cost of engraving per individual space is $500 per space if stock graphic is used or $650 if customized artwork is requested—total fee must be paid prior to reserving space on the Wall. Stock graphic images are defined as any image that has been engraved on the Memorial Wall. Custom images must be approved by the City. No spaces are reserved until payment in full is received.

Engraving schedule: Engraving is done once per year in May. Requests are due by April 1. Dedication of newly engraved spaces is done annually on Memorial Day. Astoria Granite does the engraving—this takes 2-3 days when the weather is clear and dry. On the engraving year a letter is sent indicating the completion of the engraving and announcing the service. The annual Memorial Day service is at 3pm.
