Honoring Those Who Served
The City of Bixby is proud Honors Veterans at its Bixby Cemetery in the following ways:
Bixby Veterans Monument
Our Veteran’s Monument is located at the center of the cemetery, along with a flag. There, families can have the name engraved of their loved one who has served in our U.S. Military and is buried in our City’s cemetery. Proof of Military Service (Form DD-214) and a $50 engraving fee are required. Please contact the Cemetery Administrator for more information.
Veterans Affairs Headstones or markers
A family can honor their loved one with a military marker and/or headstone provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. A funeral home can assist families with this process, or you can contact the Cemetery Administrator for more information. The City Administrator needs to be notified at the time of ordering, be provided a copy of the VA Form 40-1330, Proof of Military Service, and will need to gather additional information. No monuments or markers are permitted to be set in the Bixby Cemetery without prior approval from the Cemetery Administrator.
Memorial Day Weekend Ceremony
A group designated by the city may facilitate a special commemorative Memorial Day Service on Memorial Day that includes a variety of events. Flags are put up throughout the cemetery. A civic organization may have small flags placed at the grave spaces that have an existing Veteran’s marker.
