Burial Services

FOR OVER 150 YEARS, care and maintenance have been top priorities at Forest Hills. Years ago, in order to ensure these would remain top priorities into perpetuity, the Board of Directors established an endowment fund for this purpose. Today, one-half the cost of any grave or lot that you purchase is directed into this investment fund to ensure perpetual care of the cemetery’s burial sites, buildings and grounds.

Burial Options

You might select any one of a number of burial options:  a full casket burial with or without a service, a cremation burial in a grave or a cremation plot, an urn placed in a niche in either our indoor or outdoor columbaria, or a scattering of cremated remains. You may prefer a church service or a service in one of our three beautiful chapels, a graveside service with family and friends, or no service at all. Arrangements can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish.

Graves or lots, openings, liners, liner installation, and all other burial fees may be purchased in advance, on a Pre-Need basis. Our Installment Purchase Plan allows you to make a down payment of 33% of the total price, and to extend monthly payments over 18 months, interest-free. We accept cash, personal checks, Visa, and Mastercard.

Should you purchase a grave or lot at Forest Hills, we will keep in your personal file any copies that you may wish to send us of documents specifying your final wishes that you have given to family, friends, an attorney or a funeral director.

Through the auspices of our Historical Areas Burial Options, lots and graves are now also available in the older, historic sections of the Cemetery.
