Planning & Arrangements

Hillside Cemetery recognizes the challenges of end-of-life planning. We will assist you with care and compassion in making these decisions whether you are planning for the future or need to make immediate arrangements.  Hillside is a place of remembrance, a place to mourn loved ones, a place to seek solace and a place to celebrate life.

Immediate Need

Most  people don’t give much thought to death and what happens when they lose a loved one. If a family hasn’t already made the necessary pre-arrangements at a cemetery, this is termed an “immediate need”. If someone you love has passed away, our compassionate staff is available to guide you through this difficult process. Please contact the Cemetery office at 203-762-5591


Pre-need purchasing is rapidly becoming an important component of estate planning for your future and the future of your family. By taking care of your own burial arrangements or the arrangements of an aging loved one before their time of need, you free yourself and your family from the burden of making emotional and financial decisions during an already difficult time.

By purchasing a gravesite in advance you will receive more favorable pricing and give peace of mind to your family.
