Registry of Remembrances

NFDA strongly encourages funeral directors to support the National World War II Memorial recently built in Washington, D.C., and help recognize the millions of Americans who helped win the war by submitting their names to the memorial’s Registry of Remembrances. This long overdue tribute will feature the names of those who participated in the war effort in battle or on the home front.

It has recently been announced that photographs will be accepted as part of the Registry of Remembrances. Individuals can submit an electronic copy of the photograph or a print copy of the original photo. Please note that submitted photographs, CDs and diskettes will not be returned. For more information about the memorial, call 800-639-4WW2 or visit

NFDA also offers funeral directors a brochure to help them fully explain the National World War II Memorial to the families they serve. It explains how they can register their loved ones to be a part of the Registry of Remembrances.

NFDA is a proud supporter of the National World War II Memorial. In 2000, NFDA’s held its Celebration of Freedom Campaign, a grassroots funeral service fund-raising campaign that raised more than $2 million on behalf of the memorial. This generous outpouring of support ranks NFDA and funeral service as the second-highest non-corporate donor, behind only the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and among the top 10 contributors to the entire campaign, among such notables as Wal-Mart and Federal Express.
