At The Cremation Society of New Hampshire, we sincerely appreciate the selfless service our veterans have shown to this great nation. As such, we have created several special veterans cremation packages and add-on features to honor them and their families. We strive to maintain the integrity of veterans’ service in the armed forces, and we take great care to ensure that every aspect of the cremation process is approached with dignity and respect.
The items in our American Veterans Cremation Program are available to verified military personnel, present, past, or retired. To qualify for the veteran’s package or any of the veteran add-on features, the person’s military status must be verified. Typically, the family or individual will submit the DD Form 214 (Report of Separation from the Armed Forces of the United States), or its equivalent, to us when they order the veterans package and services.
We work hard with the families on how to apply for veterans death benefits to help them get all the assistance due to them. Research shows that the majority of veterans do not receive all of the benefits that are entitled to, but our trained staff can help walk you through the process. We also handle all paperwork that the VA requires.
The New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery is less than two miles from our Concord office in Boscawen. However, if you do not live in New Hampshire or wish to be interred in another veterans cemetery elsewhere, we can help you with the necessary arrangements to make that happen.
