Virginia Veterans Cemetery at Amelia
Virginia Department of Veterans Services
Who We Are
The Virginia Department of Veterans Services' three veterans cemeteries provide a final resting place for our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines—a place of honor, dignity, respect, and remembrance. The Virginia Veterans Cemetery at Amelia is open to the public for visitation everyday during daylight hours.
For expediency, the veteran may apply prior to death to determine eligibility for interment in the cemetery. To download a copy of the pre-application form, visit the website. You may also request a copy of the pre-application by calling the cemetery at (757) 255-7217. Visit the website for specific eligibility information.
In addition to the pre-application form, veterans must submit documentation of military service (DD214 or equivalent) and a copy of a marriage certificate, if applicable. Veterans must also inform cemetery management of other dependent eligibility status at time of application.
