Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery


***IMPORTANT MESSAGE***

Our deepest sympathy and concern are being extended to families who have lost a loved one during this unprecedented time. State of Nevada cemeteries are closed due to the Coronavirus Pandemic situation. No cremains interments are being scheduled until they can be safely conducted.

However, burials for veterans and eligible family members who have not chosen to be cremated are scheduled on a limited basis, although we are asking family members and funeral homes to delay these burials where possible. Interments are currently conducted without services or military honors until it is safe to do so.

We appreciate those families who have agreed to postpone interments and will reach out to them to schedule interments and memorial services once this situation resolves. You may contact cemetery staff by phone or email:

Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery (702) 486-5920, extension 221 or email naylorc@veterans.nv.gov
