The Ulster County Veterans Cemetery

at New Paltz Rural Cemetery

A special section of New Paltz Cemetery has been designated for the interment of veterans and their spouses. Ulster County, in partnership with the New Paltz Rural Cemetery, established  the Ulster County Veterans Cemetery on November 11, 2008. Ulster County Veterans are eligible for a burial and grave marker at no expense, upon request of next of kin. The veteran must have served in Armed Forces of the U.S. or National Guard, received no less than a “general” discharge and been a resident of Ulster County. Ulster County pays for the cost of the veteran’s burial plot,

grave marker footing and interment. Local funeral directors should be aware of the procedure to request a veteran plot, or you may contact the Ulster County Veteran Services Agency for information.
