In addition to the cemeteries listed above, there are believed to be other cemeteries located around the Bay of Islands which may not have been listed in church records. Weebol may have a lone grave of a man who drowned. There is a small cemetery at Crabbs and Goose Arm on the North Shore of the bay. There may be a lone grave of Henry Brake in, or near to the Lundrigan's sand pit in Brake's Cove. There may be a cemetery in Bottle Cove (near Lark Harbour) of French Sailors. There may be scattered graves on other islands and isolated coves in the bay.
