Both Mississippi Veterans Memorial Cemeteries are open for in-ground burials and accepts cremains for both in-ground or columbarium interment. The cemetery in Newton is located approximately three (3) miles east of Newton on Highway 80. The cemetery in Kilmichael is located on Highway 82 west. Veterans, their spouses and eligible dependent children can be buried in a Mississippi Veterans Memorial Cemetery at no cost unless the burial involves re-interment from another cemetery. The VA provides a free grave marker and perpetual care is provided at no cost. Contact your funeral director or the office of the cemetery of choice for information.
