Golden Gate National Cemetery occupies 161 acres in the city of San Bruno, which is 12 miles south of San Francisco. Congress authorized its construction in 1937, and interments began in 1941. The cemetery was officially dedicated on Memorial Day 1942, which fell on May 30 that year. It is among a host of veterans’ cemeteries begun in the 1930s and completed in the 1940s in cities across the country that were home to large numbers of veterans. It is closed to new interments, but subsequent interments of veterans and/or eligible family members that share an existing gravesite can be made. Golden Gate National Cemetery should not be confused with the San Francisco National Cemetery, which was established during the 1800s in the city’s Presidio.
