On occasion, the NH State Veterans Cemetery receives a request to inter a veteran or family member with no known next-of-kin. The service, with military honors (if appropriate) is conducted with a cemetery staff member in attendance. Occasionally, if given enough notice, the cemetery will reach out to various groups to encourage attendance.
The NH State Veterans Cemetery has created a page to allow those who are interested to sign-up for e-mail notification when there is a burial with no known next-of-kin. This list will ONLY be used for these notifications. Please feel free to sign-up if you are interested.
If you would like to be notified of interments with no known next-of-kin, please provide your email address below and you will receive an email with the date and time of the service. These services can occur on very short-notice. We never hold remains overnight. We always inter remains the day they are received. In the case of unscheduled services, we conduct the service in conjunction with a previously scheduled event for that particular military branch; therefore, the service may occur after the remains are interred.
