Hillcrest Cemetery is located on Lot 2, Concession 5 of North Elmsley Township, (now Drummond/North Elmsley).

The cemetery was founded in 1832 as the private burial ground of the Simpson family. It was purchased by local government in 1869 to establish a publicly owned non-denominational cemetery for the community.

The cemetery is over 37 acres with an estimated 13,100 individuals buried within. About 12,000 of those burials have markers.

The cemetery is managed and maintained by the Town of Smiths Falls.
