Green Mortuary Services
Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary is one of a select number of funeral homes that meet the criteria for providing Green funeral service by the Green Burial Council; a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization working to encourage environmental sustainability in the field of funeral service. These offerings allow for a funeral or private visitation to take place without the use of toxic or non-biodegradable materials and/or chemicals. Caskets and shrouds are made available to enclose and transport the deceased. Body preparation suitable for a Green funeral service accommodated by Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary consists of refrigeration and alternative care with the use of topical sprays.
Itemized price lists for all the goods and services we offer are available below, allowing you to customize the goods and services you desire.
