Since the 19th century Hillside Cemetery has the distinction of being one the most beautiful and peaceful cemeteries in Fairfield County. The cemetery staff understands that grieving does not end on the day of interment. An interment site is a place for family and friends to mourn, remember and celebrate loved ones. We pride ourselves in the well-maintained grounds of Hillside Cemetery. When you purchase grave spaces, a portion of the cost goes into an endowment for the care and maintenance of the cemetery now and the future. Our staff is dedicated to serving our families with quality, honor and respect.
Hillside Cemetery understands how important it is for grave sites of loved ones to appear neat and manicured. Following a burial, the grounds staff will prepare the grave for seeding by filling, leveling and tamping the soil. The timing of this process varies due to weather conditions. Generally this will take up to a week after the interment. Winter burials will be attended to as the weather permits. The ideal times to seed are in the spring and fall. It is not unusual for a grave to continue to settle over time, this will be addressed as needed.
