Services to Veterans
We provide a wide variety of products and services specifically for veterans. We are a veteran family and consider it our sacred obligation to render appropriate dignified, low-cost services for those who have sacrificed so much for us.
V.A. Burial Benefits
Generally speaking, veterans who, at the time of their death, were in receipt of a monthly compensation check from the V. A., will be eligible for financial assistance for funeral and cemetery expenses. Veterans whose cause of death is deemed to be service-connected will receive a greater amount. Veterans who die in a V. A. facility will also receive additional transportation allowances associated with interment or cremation.
We encourage you to consider the Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery for your cemetery needs. Generally speaking, interment of casketed or cremated remains is free for qualified veterans, their spouses and dependent children. This includes grave space, interment, concrete burial box and headstone for all, not just for the veteran.

In addition to the national cemetery, some cemetery space may be available for veterans through the Veterans Service Commission of your county. Guidelines vary from county to county. Look for your county's commission in the blue government section of your local telephone directory.
Also, veteran graves are available at Mount Olive Cemetery in Solon through the Jewish War Veterans. If you are interested in receiving information about these sections, call us at (440) 498-1993.
In cases of financial need, some monetary assistance may also be available through your county's Veterans Service Commission. We will assist with all claim forms, local and federal.
Regardless of the cemetery selected, there are a variety of headstones or markers available from the Department of Veterans Affairs. We will gladly assist you in completing the application form. The only cost is for installation by the cemetery. The manufacture and delivery of the marker is free.
