brought to life at Ivy Green Cemetery in Bremerton, Washington.
1995 the City of Bremerton passed a resolution dedicating 40 burial
sites at Ivy Green Cemetery specifically for burial of those veterans
who have served in submarines of the United States Navy.
Subsequently, in 2002, USSVI-Bremerton Base placed a stone
monument there commemorating those submarine veterans. Ivy Green
Cemetery is located at 1401 Naval Avenue, at the opposite end of Naval
Avenue from Naval Station Kitsap-Bremerton, generally known as PSNS.

this honor. A full burial (side by side) for a submarine veteran and his
spouse would require two sites, purchased at the same time. A single
site would be adequate for inurnment of cremated remains of a veteran

based upon mailing addresses of individual parties. Non-Bremerton

and a non-resident $1100.00. This initial plot cost does not
include additional burial costs such as opening/closing the grave,
liners, markers, etc. Services and costs are reviewed annually by the
Bremerton City Council and adjusted as appropriate.
The City of Bremerton does
not accept partial or time payments. Site purchases must be paid in full

responsible for filing their deed with the Kitsap County Auditor.
