Honorably discharged veterans may qualify for certain benefits. Veterans are entilied to a plot in a veterans cemetery, veterans marker or headstone (depending on the cemetery), burial flag, honors and possible burial allowance. You will need to provide the veterans DD214 (discharge papers). If your unable to locate the DD214 please see the link to VA Archives.
If you wish to use insurance policies to cover the funeral expenses we will help you in filing the claim. There will occasionally be insurance companies that will only accept a claim from the family not the funeral home.
