New Ongoing Artificial Flower Policy Started in April 2006:
We permit and encourage in-ground, live flower planting, as well as live flower arrangements in suitable, unbreakable (non-glass or ceramic) containers placed at the front of monuments. For the safety of our employees, artificial flowers, crosses and signs will only be permitted if they are placed on the monuments or in a border in front of the monument. Thank you for your cooperation. Ask the caretaker if you have any questions. Any items that do not meet this criteria will be removed. This policy was advertised May 2006 in the Progress under the 'Public Notices' section and there are also signs throughout the cemetery detailing this policy.

Follow East Market Street from Downtown Clearfield until there is a Y in the road near the old Leonard Grade School. Bear left onto Cemetery Road, continue 1/4 of a mile up the road. Hillcrest is located on the left at the crest of the hill (Hillcrest). There are 3 entrances to Hillcrest Cemetery. Old Clearfield Cemetery is on the right side as you come up Cemetery Road, across from the caretaker's green-shingled house and Hillcrest South is located on the lower right of the road. Hillcrest South is where the Grice mausoleum is located.
Please note that we do not own nor do we have records for the old cemetery aka Clearfield Cemetery or Old Hillcrest across the street from our cemetery, and it is an abandoned cemetery that is maintained by the County. There are certain perpetual care lots there that we mow if the county is not able to do so. No one has been buried there since the mid-1970's. The records were lost in a fire many years ago.

Hillcrest Cemetery Vandalism Report Update: 2007 Sometime between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning July 13-14, 2004 three teenagers aged 14, 15, and 15 toppled 114 monuments. The three boys were found guilty and were ordered to pay restitution after they pay their normal fines and costs. The cemetery is not legally obligated nor is it liable for these damages. Your Homeowner's Insurance should cover any expense to have the monuments re-set. We have reset most of the stones ourselves but a few of them will have to be set by a monument company or by someone who is insured for liabilty in case of accident. Some of the monuments we reset will need to be resealed by a monument company or you can do it yourself using silicon weather-resistant caulking. If your insurance does not cover the cost for re-setting then it will be at your expense until the restitution has been paid. If you've had any eternal candles damaged or stolen please report it to the Borough Police 765-7819. Vandalism is not covered under Perpetual Care. Some monuments are still upset today as of 11-7-07 and it is the family's responsibilty to visit or contact the cemetery and find out if their lot was affected, and then take the proper course of action.
