It is important for you and your family that time be taken to develop and update your Estate Planning.

To assist you in this planning, our Veterans have conducted some research that will assist you and your family.  The following are topics have corresponding documents which contain information for you to read or print off. It is our recommendation that you take the time to review the documents on the noted topics:

  • Guide for Survivors & Executors – this is an excellent document prepared for the RCMP National Veterans’ Association by Janet and Victor Gorman – Support and Advocacy Committee, RCMP Nova Scotia Veterans’ Association – 2020-National-Survivors-and-Executors-Guide-2
  • RCMP Regimental Grave Marker – For details on RCMP Grave markers, check out our webpage entitled “Last Walk Across The Square.” The Force will cover the cost of a RCMP regimental grave marker provided you received a pension or died while serving in the Force.  For details about obtaining a RCMP Grave Marker for “E” and “M” Division, please contact Administrative Support Clerk – HR Branch – Employee & Management Relations Section at RCMP “E” Division HQ, Mailstop #1103 – 14200 Green Timbers Way Surrey, BC V3T 6P3. (Phone – 778-290-2671).
  • Honour Guard Coordinator – can be a great assistance to the Veteran’s family.
NOTE: Prior to ordering a grave marker, it is important to first check with the respective cemetery to determine what types of grave markers will be accepted.  
  • Alternative Grave Markers – You and your family may wish to purchase your own grave maker.  Some past Veterans have asked that a crest of the Force be placed on the grave marker to denote service in the RCMP.
