San Francisco National Cemetery is administered by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.


The San Francisco National Cemetery is the oldest national cemetery on the west coast. Established pursuant to a War Department General Order on December 12, 1884, the cemetery first comprised of only 9.5 acres, but was later extended to its present 28 acres.

The cemetery is located on the grounds of the original post cemetery. It also includes remains of persons originally interred at several abandoned forts and camps along the Pacific coast and other parts of the Far West, including: Fort Halleck and Fort McDermitt in Nevada, Fort Yuma in California, Fort Colville and Fort Townsend in Washington, and Camp Crittenden and Fort McDowell in Arizona.

    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.
