Virginia Veterans Cemeteries
In recognition of the sacrifices of her veterans, the Commonwealth of Virginia has established several Virginia Veterans Cemeteries, under the administration of the Virginia Department of Veterans Affairs.
- Virginia Veterans Cemetery at Amelia
- Albert G. Horton, Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery (Suffolk)
Virginia’s veterans cemeteries provide burial and perpetual care services to veterans and eligible dependents.
Virginia Veterans Cemetery, in Amelia, is a 129-acre facility, located near the town of Amelia, approximately 35 miles southwest of Richmond.
Albert G. Horton, Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery, in Suffolk, is a 73-acre facility, convenient to most of the Hampton Roads community. Virginia is in the process of developing a third Veterans Cemetery, Southwest Virginia Veterans Cemetery, which will be located near Dublin.
There is no cost to veterans for interment in these cemeteries, however a charge may apply to burial of spouses or dependents. Virginia Veterans Cemeteries do not provide graveliners and it is the responsibility of the family to procure one. Veterans Funeral Care can assist with this.
