We are proud to be part of our community and we are equally as proud of providing over 80 years of service to all of you. In celebration and gratitude for the honor and privilege of your trust for all of those years, we are reaffirming our commitment to all of you. In addition to our annual programs such as Toys for Tots, being sponsors of various community events, and supporting various community services and resources, we are also continuing our new programs "Cook Cares" and "Replenish". For 2021, we are excited and proud to announce that we have been awarded certification from the Green Burial Council which means we are the first and only cemetery to offer true certified Green Burial on the Island and throughout Kitsap County!

January 2021 Events

Hillcrest awarded Green Burial Council Certification

Jan 1, 2021

As many of you know, we have been working hard at Hillcrest Cemetery to become certified as a Green Burial Cemetery. Well, all the work has paid off and it has been worth it! 

 

As of December 24, 2020, Cook Family Funeral Home and Hillcrest Cemetery are proud to offer to our community, the first Green Burial Council Hybrid Cemetery on Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap Penninsula!

 

What this means is that in addition to our traditional offerings, we have adopted "Best Practices" along with many steps to enhance our commitment to the environment and allow families the opportunity to have a true green burial.
