The Clearfield Cemetery Company is a non-profit 501(c)13 corporation that only owns Hillcrest Cemetery. Clearfield Cemetery Company is not an association of cemeteries in Clearfield. If you would like to volunteer or make a contribution, you can contact the part-time superintendent using the link below. Grave spaces are still available at $600 each.

If you have a question or have genealogy requests you may click here to email the part-time Superintendent, Matt Franson. Put 'Hillcrest Cemetery' in the subject line. He will inform you of the proper fee to carry out your request since he no longer lives on-site and he can also email you monument photos depending on the season. Please be aware that there are other cemeteries in Clearfield and Hillcrest is not affiliated with them and some are not listed in the phone book. Contact a funeral home local to that cemetery to find out who to contact for info. There is an old abandoned cemetery known as Clearfield cemetery or 'Old Hillcrest' located across the street from Hillcrest that we do not have records for since we do not own it. Some old obituaries that have Hillcrest cemetery listed as the burial place meant that cemetery and not the actual Hillcrest cemetery. We have run into these problems with requests from Some graves at Hillcrest are unmarked. The cemetery does not have special cornerstones or signs on the grounds to easily find graves. If you need assistance finding a grave then you will have to make a pre-appointment with the superintendent and there will be a fee. We do not have copies of the map. The cemetery is 22+ acres.

Flower Policy:
We permit and encourage in-ground, LIVE flower planting, as well as LIVE flower arrangements in suitable, unbreakable (***non-glass or non-ceramic***) containers placed at the front of monuments. Artificial flowers, crosses and decorations will only be permitted if they are placed ***on the monuments or in a protective border/curbing in front of the monument.*** You should place a weed barrier down along with thick mulch to prevent weed growth otherwise vegetation will grow up and around your plantings and look awful, and the cemetery isn't required to remove that vegetation since perpetual care only covers ***mowing and reseeding***. Even when you poke small holes in the weed barrier, that gives enough light for vegetation to grow so you may need to use some sort of weed/vegetation killer. Thank you for your cooperation. If you place stones instead of mulch and our equipment would catch those stones and cause bodily injury to our employees and volunteers, then you can be held responsible and liable. What you may not realize is that artificial flowers are wiring coated in plastic and when lawn equipment comes into contact with it, it can cause problems and sometimes bodily injury. Contact the part-time Superintendent if you have any questions. Any items that do not meet this criteria will be removed and you will not be reimbursed. The original policy was advertised May 2006 in the Progress under the 'Public Notices' section and there are also signs throughout the cemetery detailing the 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 (hence the name 'Hillcrest'). 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 Hillcrest cemetery on Cemetery Rd, and it is an abandoned cemetery that is currently maintained by Clearfield County.
