Veteran Burials

The Yolo County Veterans Services Office (VSO) has purchased a variety of cremation and casket plots on our grounds. These plots are made available for no cost on an “at need” basis to qualified veterans upon verification by the VSO.¬†Interment for the veteran’s spouse into the same plot is permitted.

Burial Costs:

While there is no cost for the plot, it is the family and/or loved one’s responsibility to pay the interment fee and cost of the vault (if needed) associated with the burial type selected.
