For families that have recently inurned a loved one in the Columbarium or Niche Wall:

It is taking us longer than expected to place your loved one's inscribed niche cover. There was a delay in the production of blank marble niche covers used to commemorate those inurned at Arlington National Cemetery. This issue has been addressed and measures are being taken to expedite the backlog it caused. Once the niche cover is received it will be installed as soon as possible. A digital photograph will be taken and uploaded. We regret the delay and appreciate your patience and understanding.
