Veterans Honor Grounds
We have a beautiful section in Mansfield Cemetery created to honor our veterans. This was designed for any honorably discharged veteran and their spouse for minimal cost, or free of charge if the family does not have the financial means.
Burials are in sequential order by date of death.
Effective August 23, 2016, the Mansfield Cemetery will no longer be doing 8 foot burials, because of the danger to their employees and the instability of the ground in the Veterans Honor Grounds area. The Veterans Service Commission Board has had to amend our rules in accordance with this change, which still allows for a couple to be buried on one lot; however, now it has to be one regular vault burial and one cremation, or two cremations.
Included in the cost is the lot, one headstone, headstone footer, flag holder, and flag holder footer. Lots are purchased through this office only, and a DD214 is required.
Please contact our office for more information.
