Veteran Burial Benefits

There are five existing Tennessee State Veterans Cemeteries to include two in Knoxville, one in Nashville, one in Memphis and one in Parkers Crossroads.  The State Veterans Cemeteries are managed and maintained by the Tennessee Department of Veterans Services.  These pristine final resting places meet the National Cemetery Administration standards as required by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.  Veterans are buried at no charge.  Eligible dependents are buried at no cost to the surviving family.
