Cemetery History

Washington State Veterans Cemetery was dedicated on May 31, 2010 with the first interment taking place on Jun 7, 2010.  Included in the initial site development was a committal shelter, over 1,000 pre-placed crypts, 5,700 columbarium niches, an unspecified number of burial plots for in-ground inurnments as well as a scattering garden.

The state provided 120 acres of land for the facility and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs provided an $8.8 million federal grant to design, construct and completely the operation.  The cemetery sits adjacent to Fairchild Air Force Base, overlooking West Medical Lake.  The initial ground breaking ceremony was held on May 25, 2009.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
