ABOUT US

The cemetery is the culmination of a group of caring vets who had a vision of a dignified place where family and friends can visit loved

THE CEMETERY

BECOME A PART OF OUR FAMILY

The Northern New Jersey Veterans Memorial Cemetery is owned, operated, and licensed to a group of dedicated Veterans whom receive no compensation. Since November 26, 2015, there have been 237 burials. Phase one will hold 1500 graves and when fully developed the Cemetery will hold approximately 16,000 graves. The land, 67 acres, was donated by Sussex County.

The NNJVMC are working to keep the cost as low as possible. The state of NJ requires a percentage of all plot sales and opening fees go into a Maintenance and Preservation Fund for the perpetual care of the cemetery. We welcome the support of donations.

The term "eligible veteran" shall be

defined by the National Cemetery Administration.

Required Documents:

  • Copy Veteran's Military Separation Papers
