Pre-Planning

Making decisions before an immediate need arises can offer many benefits to you and your loved ones. While many plan for vacations and retirement, burial or cremation planning is often overlooked or avoided.   Lack of planning for one’s final resting place can lead to a stressful situation for your family, especially during an already traumatic time. Plans made in advance for cremation or burial are an invaluable gift to your loved ones. They allow family members to commemorate a life as well as mourn peacefully and comfortably, rather than focus on unanswered questions of immediate arrangements. A pre-need purchase of a grave site or cremains site is almost always a more economical option than purchasing at the time of death.

Hilltop Cemetery works with all families, funeral directors and churches to provide a easy and respectful way to arrange for purchase of a grave site and to hold services for loved ones when they are laid to rest.  With many graves sites available Hilltop Cemetery will assist you or your family in making plans for a final resting place.

Hilltop Cemetery works with all funeral directors in the area and even out of state.   Funeral directors can be found through personal recommendations, a simple Internet search, or through your place of worship.  Below are links to a few funeral directors in the Mendham area.
