Expansion Of The Columbarium Wall At Winfield Provides More Options for Veteran Interment


A Ribbon Cutting ceremony was held for the Winfield Cemetery’s addition of 1280 new niches to serve as a final resting place for veterans. Winfield’s cemetery and its’ columbarium wall are part of the State Veterans Cemeteries and they provide internment for our veterans, spouses, and dependents. The expansion of the wall will add to the 800 niches already in place at Winfield Cemetery.

Administered through the Kansas Commission on Veterans Affairs Office and locations include not only Winfield, but Fort Dodge, WaKeeney, and Fort Riley. The project will allow Winfield Cemetery to continue to be able to offer the option for veteran internments that will last a decade or more.

Governor Laura Kelly cut the ribbon for the ceremony, praised the project, and said that the sanctuary was befitting of the veteran's service and sacrifice.
