Our deepest sympathy and concern are being extended to families who have lost a loved one during this unprecedented time.
Nevada has moved to Phase 2 of Reopening, effective May 29, 2020. Our cemeteries will now allow up to 50 observers following social distancing for the direct burials. Additionally, we have informed the funeral homes that full honors are now allowed at interment, but the honor guard must follow social distancing as well.
We appreciate those families who have agreed to postpone interments and will reach out to them in the near future to schedule interments. You may contact cemetery staff by phone or email:
Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery (775) 575-4441 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

The cemetery is located on 40 acres of land owned and maintained by the State of Nevada. The grounds are peaceful and immaculately maintained. The cemetery serves as a place of rest and reflection where eligible veterans, their spouses and eligible dependents are remembered and honored in perpetuum.
