Burial Services

FOR OVER 170 YEARS, care and maintenance have been top priorities at Forest Hills Cemetery. Years ago, in order to ensure thse would remain top priorities into perpetuity, the Board of Directors established an endowment fund for this purpose. Today, one-half of 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 Services
You might select any one of a number of burial options: A 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, a home service, or a service in one of our 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.
