I would like to thank contributor David Schram for the many, MANY long hours he has put into photographing graves in western Oklahoma, posting those photos, and adding memorials for those folks who didn't have one before. He has earned the feeling of great satisfaction!|
Find a Grave contributors have done an outstanding job of documenting burials in Oklahoma. Many states still have a huge backlog of graves undocumented in Find a Grave.
I give a big THANK YOU to all contributors who take the time to send me edits and post photos and flowers to the memorials I add. I normally check for edits every day.

Thank you very much for transferring her to me. I will take good care of her.

Hello. Thank you so very much for your SAC. A very sad end for Mr. Lewin but a great find. I've made the update and it also gave me a chance to "fix up" the memorial (I was a tad messy when I first started).
My thanks again,

When I first started adding memorials to that cemetery they had their own website. They eventually switched over to the VAs Nationwide gravesite locator. When they switched over it made it much more difficult, for me anyway, to add memorials there.
So to answer your question I really hadnt noticed, but it is possible the names arent added right away. There could be a little bit of lag time. However, I really do not know. Sorry. Denise.

No, but I have never investigated.

Additional comment. I do have a few family members who have VA markers in private cemeteries but don't show up in the VA search site that you're asking about.

Oh, I have used the website, just haven't found any discrepancies yet. However, based on what I've read on feedback from your question; it makes logical sense for those whose ashes are held by the family.
Have a great day! Enjoy this sunshine (while we can!).

I've seen some in the past. Generally this occurs when someone enters a memorial based on an obituary and doesn't verify the burial has actually taken place. While the Cemetery conducts burials year round, often families prefer to wait for a date in the future. This happens frequently in the winter months. I have also seen memorials created for surviving spouses (based on obituary information) with the death date left blank.
In addition to the circumstances described by Bev, there are times when families use the chapel but don't inter cremains in order to scatter them elsewhere. There may be an intention to use the Veterans Cemetery at the time of death and then the family changes its mind.
The NH Veterans Cemetery maintains both a calendar of upcoming events and a schedule of burials performed. You can find these on the Cemetery's web site. The office staff is exceptionally prompt in reporting plot information to the national database, usually within 48 hours of burial.
Additionally, the Director periodically checks the records entered here and send edits for any errors he finds, including plops.
If you have questions about a particular decedent, you can call the Cemetery office. They also maintain a locator kiosk at the Cemetery to assist visitors.
Hope that helps!

I went back into both memorials. I have deleted the one created in 2013 and updated the one created in 2012. I got the bio from the paper and the corrected birth date and where he was buried was received the Fairview Cemetery personnel. The also have our City Cemetery under their care.
Thanks for bringing the duplication to my attention. Hope this helps you.

Only one that I know of. Cremation ashes being held by family until the spouse passes away.
