Pine Ridge
Cemetery
,

    The oldest cemetery, it is located at the intersection of Old Dublin Road and Main Street. Lots are no longer available in this cemetery.

    This cemetery is home to many of Hancock's early residents and is the final resting place for many Revolutionary war and Civil War veterans.

Norway Plain
Cemetery

    It is located behind the Congregational Church and is the second cemetery built in Hancock, on what was known as “the plains.”

     Although all the full burial lots are sold we still have many cremation-only lots available in this cemetery. This cemetery still accepts almost half of all interments done in Hancock.





Hillside
Cemetery

    Hillside Cemetery is located on NH Route 137N about 1 mile out of town.

    This cemetery is the only cemetery that still has available full interment lots, as well as cremation lots.





Funding

    Funding for our cemeteries comes from a variety of sources. Some of the older lots are funded through perpetual care trust funds, others are funded through an expendable trust, and the balance are funded through fees charged for services. Since 2002 the cemeteries have been operated with no tax dollars.
