G.A.R. Cemetery

Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) Cemetery is owned and operated by the City of Miami. The cemetery consists of 86 acres with more than 20,000 burial plots currently in place, with the oldest recorded and legibly marked grave dated 1892. It is the purpose of the G.A.R. Cemetery staff and management to provide empathetic, compassionate, and effective services for our families.




Remember My Journey is a unique program designed for family members and friends of those interred at G.A.R. Cemetery. Every burial record in the cemetery has its own memorial page with the ability to upload unlimited photos, videos, documents, and memories to enable you to create a lasting memorial for your loved one’s life story.


The shared memories build a timeline of their life that will be archived for future generations to learn more about how they enriched the lives of their family and friends.
