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 veterans spouse into the same plot is permitted.
While there is no cost for the plot, it is the family and/or friend’s responsibility to pay the interment fee and cost of the vault associated with the burial type selected.
Typically, the funeral home will help families coordinate graveside military honors. If you are not working with a funeral home, branch contact information is listed below.
