We are proud to be part of our community and we are equally as proud of providing over 82 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 2022, we are excited and proud to announce that we have been awarded certification from the Green Burial Council for the second year which means we are still the first and only cemetery to offer true certified Green Burial on the Island and throughout Kitsap County!

January 2022 Events

Introducing "CookCares" and "Replenish"

Jan 1, 2022 12:00 AM to Dec 31, 2022 12:00 PM

As we celebrate over 82 years of service to our community this year, we are continuing our new services which will be simply unmatched in our area. The first of these is "CookCares".  This is our guarantee, to everyone we are honored to serve, that we are committed to providing the absolute best in personal care, services, support, and funeral-related items available in our area.

 From how we handle your family's needs, care for your loved one, listen to your requests or answer our phone, we want you to rest assured that you are receiving the very best. We also want you to know there is someone standing behind all of it... and that's our family.

We have also developed our "CookCares" Code of Ethics.  This code ensures and promises that everyone on staff and associated with Cook Family Funeral Home always uses Best Practices when working with you and your loved one. It's just one more guarantee that you are receiving the very best care available. 

And to be clear; we are not just saying it, but rather providing it to you in writing. It's easy to claim your the best. It's quite different to guarantee it in writing!

 

Our second program is "Replenish".  This is our commitment to you and our environment. As you may know, we took over Hillcrest Cemetery here on Bainbridge Island. Shortly after, Cook Family Funeral Home and Hillcrest Cemetery became the first funeral home and cemetery to offer true Green Burial in Kitsap County and surrounding communities. 

In addition to Green Burial, we also offer "Aquamation" which is the new Flameless Cremation Process and we have recently been certified by the Green Burial Council. In addition, we have looked at everything we do and have tried to find better ways to use our natural resources and reduce our impact on the environment. From better use of space at Hillcrest Cemetery to the products we use at our funeral home, choices are made to better use the resources we have and reduce our impact by employing more environmentally sound offerings and products. "Replenish" is our promise to be aware and offer the best options we can with the least amount of impact. Simply put, it's giving back to the planet that gives us all so much.

To experience the difference our family and 82 years of service can make, call or visit us today...you won't be disappointed...we guarantee it.

Hillcrest awarded Green Burial Council Certification Again.

Jan 1, 2022 12:00 AM to Dec 31, 2022 12:00 PM

It is true that hard work pays off and that is certainly true at Hillcrest Cemetery. This year marks the second year that we have been awarded Certification by the Green Burial Council.

 

If you all remember, On December 24, 2020, Cook Family Funeral Home and Hillcrest Cemetery proudly announced to the community, that they were awarded the first Green Burial Council Hybrid Cemetery on Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap Penninsula! 

 

This was exciting news and was only possible because of those we are honored to serve. It was all of you who showed interest in Green Burial that gave us the incentive to pursue the certification and we are truly grateful for the continued support!
