Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery
Eligible veterans and their spouse, may be buried at either the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley or the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City.
There is no charge for the plot or for opening and closing of the grave site of a veteran. A $450.00 fee is charged for the burial of a family member. Headstones are provided at no cost by the federal government. Military honors are provided by military units, however, a cemetery staff member can assist in making these arrangements.
Veterans and spouses can now be buried side by side at National Cemeteries
National Veteran Cemeteries now allow for married veterans to have separate burial entitlements -- meaning that women veterans can not be buried side by side with their veteran husbands. The Nevada Veterans Cemetery does have an established procedure allowing the space next to an interred veteran to be reserved for the veteran's spouse if they choose separate internment.
This is a great change in procedure to honor our women veterans! If you have any questions, would like to pre-register, or make any pre-registration changes, you can contact the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery directly.
To determine if you are eligible, to make advanced reservations, or if you have any questions, please call either cemetery office at:
