W.P.A. Veteran Cemetery Survey S-Z
of Hampshire County


Hampshire County has over its history had many men and some women who have been members of our military forces. Some have died in the defense of our country. Others lived out their lives and are buried here. In the late 1930s or early 1940s the Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) undertook a survey of all veteran burials in Hamphsire County prior to World War II. We believe that the information compiled during this project is an important archive of our history and should be made available to the public. These pages are dedicated to all Hampshire County citizens who served in our armed forces throughout our history whether in time of war or peace time.

Please note that the cards have faded with time. Some are on color stock, so we have edited the image for easier reading. Not all images will be alike or of the same quality. Such is the problem of scanning old documents. Where there were obvious mistakes or need for explanation we have inserted editorial comments in red type within brackets.

This page is best viewed on a high definition monitor in full screen mode (press F11 to toggle full screen mode) because cards are large.

See listing of possible omissions at bottom of page. These notes are taken from reliable publications.
