Across the road from the Hanover (new) cemetery. The new one was started when the old one was full. From "Home of my Youth-Hanover" 1967: About a mile south of the town the road passes through a section made sacred to all as the last resting place of it citizens. On the west side is known as the Crispin's Cemetery and on the east side as the new cemetery. Hanover's first cemetery was the little plot of ground given by Mr. Christian Hassenjager to be used for this purpose. There was an earlier cemetery than this about 2 miles east of the village always called Switzer's graveyard, but one of these was too far away, and the other was too close, so though there was no treasury from which to draw funds, the citizens were approached and by public subscription enough money was raised to buy a plot of land from Mr. John Crispin. Mr. Crispin did not wish to part with this land, but through the influence of Dr. Landerkin, and the business ability of Mr. A. Z. Gottwals, four acres were purchased from Mr. Crispin at forty dollars an acre. There is some doubt as to the exact date of this transaction.

Directions: From Hanover, head south from 10th St (Hwy 4) on 7th Ave. Go past Hanover Slots OLG, part way through a bend, turn right onto Concession 2. The cemetery is not more than 2km on the right hand side
