The Alabama State Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Spanish Fort sits on over 120 acres of land in Baldwin County, Alabama.
The cemetery was dedicated in December 2012 and began interments in April 2013. The initial phase of the cemetery is 22.8 acres and has 2,776
burial sites (2,392 in-ground). The lifespan of the entire cemetery is 100 years.
Pre-registration is available and allows a veteran and their spouse to establish, in advance, their eligibility for burial at the Alabama
State Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Spanish Fort. There is no cost for pre-registration and it does not obligate the veteran to be
interred at the cemetery. Pre-registration is intended to simplify and assist the veteran's next-of-kin at the time of death.
The key items needed for pre-registration are a copy of the veteran's discharge certificate (DD Form 214) and, for married
veterans, a copy of the marriage certificate.
