The database of burial and urn/plaque information is updated each day.
You may search for burial locations of veterans and their family members in VA National Cemeteries, state veterans cemeteries, various other military and Department of Interior cemeteries, and for veterans buried in private cemeteries when the grave is marked with a government grave marker.
You may also search for veterans that received a plaque or urn benefit from VA.
The database includes urn/plaque records from the VA and burial records from many sources. These sources provide varied data; some searches may contain less information than others. Information on veterans buried in private cemeteries was collected for the purpose of furnishing government grave markers, and we do not have information available for burials prior to 1997.
Erroneous information can be corrected, but we are unable to add to the information contained in the existing record.
If your search returns incorrect information about a veteran or family member buried in a national cemetery, please contact the cemetery directly to discuss your findings.
To report incorrect information about a veteran that received a urn or plaque benefit or a veteran buried in a private cemetery, click on "Contact Us" at the top of this page. Names cannot be added to the listing if a government grave marker was not furnished for the grave, or if the existing government grave marker was furnished prior to 1997.
For more complete information concerning individual records, we suggest you contact the cemetery or local officials.
The Arlington National Cemetery provides information on service members buried there. The American Battle Monuments Commission provides information on service members buried in overseas cemeteries.
