As a veteran, I understand I will be allowed a free burial plot in either of the state veterans’ cemeteries located in Agawam and Winchendon. Is my spouse entitled to be buried there as well?

Yes, although there is a charge of $300.00 for full casket or $150.00 for cremain burial (subject to change) for a spouse, widow/widower who has not remarried and qualified dependents.

To be eligible, veterans must either have entered the service from Massachusetts or have lived in Massachusetts for at least 5 consecutive years after discharge.
