Burial Benefits

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts operates two veterans cemeteries, the first of which was established in Agawam in 2001.  Since then there have been over 9,000 interment ceremonies at the Cemetery.

Committal Services are conducted in the chapel located on the grounds of the Massachusetts Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Agawam (MVMC), Monday - Friday by appointment only.


As noted in the "How to prepare for Interment at MVMC" document below, applications for interment in Agawam are not accepted on a pre-need basis. 


There are no graveside services currently available.  Cemetery policies, rules, and regulations (including floral) are available below:
