New 800 number for VA grave information years ago
The Department of Veterans Affairs now has a toll-free number to inquire about headstones for veterans or other questions concerning the gravemarker program.
This new system will greatly enhance the ability to get answers to customers who need them quickly. The VA's National Cemetery Systems Office of Memorial Programs in Washington, D.C., can be reached by calling 1-800-697-6947. This line operates from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. eastern time, Monday through Friday.
Service representatives now can supply immediate information about the status of applications, headstones, or marker delivery and general information about the memorial programs.
