Hillcrest Memorial Park and Mortuary has served Bakersfield and its surrounding area families since its founding in 1962. As a proud member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, we are devoted to exceeding expectations and providing a standard of service that is 100 percent guaranteed.
Occupying approximately 80 acres, our beautiful facility offers a comforting environment featuring rolling hills, numerous trees, a variety of flowers, and peaceful ponds and fountains offering a serene and calm setting. Other features include a spacious chapel and several memorials, monuments and personalized benches.
Ours is the only memorial park in the Bakersfield area to offer private family estate gardens. Private estates offer intimate exclusivity in which customization and custom landscapes provide a highly personal resting place. Our private estate garden is located in the court of our Serenity Cremation Garden, which also features a beautiful fountain and a courtyard of brick niches where those selecting cremation may have a personal resting place. Our private estates and cremation gardens are adjacent to our Chapel Mausoleum and our newly created Pavilion staging area where families may have their services as well as private family receptions.
We also take great pride in honoring active duty military and veterans by assisting families and the armed forces with our expertise in traditional military honors. Our Hill of Valor specifically honors veterans, members of the armed forces and their family and friends, and features an upright monument display of all the branches of service along with their flags.
To further assist families, we provide the convenience of both funeral and burial services in one location and a highly professional staff with Spanish and Portuguese-speaking capabilities. Our caring staff is well-versed in helping families with a present need, as well as those who choose to prearrange their services. We are committed to helping families of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds create memorial services that will be long remembered for the manner in which they pay respect to the unique lives that have meant so much to their family and friends.
