In 2006, the Town of Norwell Cemetery Committee retained Merrill to assist in site investigations and selection of a site for a new Town Cemetery.  After rejecting several locations due to wetlands, access, and/or groundwater issues, land off Stetson Shrine Lane was selected as the Town’s best option.
Following three years of initial planning, including the resolution of wetlands and National Heritage permits, Merrill was contracted to prepare a Phased Master Plan of a 20 acre cemetery.  In 2013, definitive site design was performed and permitted, and construction of Phase I was completed in the summer of 2014.
