Pre-registration allows a veteran, spouse, and/or dependent child to establish eligibility for interment at one of the three state veteran’s cemeteries. There is no cost for pre-registration and it does not obligate the veteran to be interred at the cemetery selected. Pre-registration is intended to establish eligibility and simplify the process for the veteran’s next-of-kin at the time of death. A separate pre-registration is not necessary for dependents. Grave spaces are assigned at time of need, specific gravesites are not reserved.
To pre-register at one of our three cemeteries located at Spooner, King, or Union Grove, complete the Pre-Registration Application (WDVA 2111) and email, or send to the address listed on the application, or to the cemetery of choice. Forward the appropriate documentation of your military service – DD214, Wisconsin residency and if married, a copy of your marriage license or certificate. online registration is currently under development.
Once all documents have been received and/or eligibility has been established a notice of confirmation regarding pre-registration will be sent to you.
If you have any specific questions regarding this process please contact the cemetery where you wish to pre-register.
