Notes from transcriber Suzanne Livingstone, Jan 2012:
“Hillcrest Burial Park is located on the East Hill of Kent.”
“Directions: From Highway 167, exit on Highway 516 (Kent-Kangley Rd) and head East 3.6miles. Turn Left onto Central Ave S/Hwy 516 for 0.1 miles. Take 1st right onto Titus St 0.3 miles. Turn right at light onto Reiten Rd and follow for 1 mile. Reiten Rd takes a sharp left at cemetery.”
“This is a very large cemetery that has annual interments of 300 on average. It is fenced in and the gates are unlocked during specific times. It is a very nicely kept cemetery. There were some stones that weren’t legible or I was unable to translate. There are a large number of simple cement block stones that only have the first and last name or first initial and last name and no dates in either case.”
“Transcriptions marked with an EE are in Eastern European Cyrillic and have been translated the best I can. The earliest burial was for 1873.”
“I walked and reread all the visible stones in the cemetery in April to June 2010.”
