Arlington National Cemetery is implementing 100% ID checks at all entrances for guests 16 and over. Visitors 16 and 17 years old may present a school issued identification for entry. Anyone not having ID will be denied entry. If any guest rides over on the Lincoln shuttle and are denied entry to the cemetery, they will not be able to re-board the shuttle.
We ask for your patience as this will create longer than usual delays and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Half of the funerals that are conducted at the cemetery are for cremated remains. A niche space is a small rectangular slot that can hold approximately 2-3 urns. The Niche Wall runs along the eastern border of the cemetery and is approximately half a mile in length. The Columbarium Courts are structures that have niches built into them. There are nine courts in total. Court nine is the newest and largest with 20,000 niche spaces.
