The town of Hanson has one municipal/private cemetery, Fern Hill Cemetery, which was founded as the churchyard of the Second Church of Christ in the West Parish of Pembroke [now the First Congregational Church of Hanson] around the date of the church’s establishment circa 1748. In the 18th and 19th centuries, several Hanson families buried their dead in small plots on their own farmland.
