Sandbeach Cemetery
Little Cranberry Island, Maine

The following table lists, in alphabetical order by family name, the persons buried in the Sandbeach Cemetery.  It is a compilation of a report prepared by the late Francis Stanley, dated 12-5-1973, and a report made by Hugh Dwelley in 1994.  Any differences are noted.  Of course, persons buried after 1973 would not be on the 1973 report, but they are not noted as being missing, as this is obvious.

I suspect some information listed here is not actually on the stones, but has been added from local knowledge of the reporters.
