U just stop by and take a quick look at a tasteful memorial

Just have to see this post Maritime museum and the second viewing go the titanic film. Brings a bit of closure and realism to it all. Worth a stop and see.

This was very interesting. It was interesting reading the tombstones,some with numbers and some with actual names. It is probably a good idea to research a little before you go so you have some background of who is buried there.

On our tour the bus stopped here at this cemetery. I was quite interested in what the tour guide had to say about many of the people that were from the Titanic laid buried here and how the movie "Titanic" had peaked people's interest in about the history of that night in our history. Personally I would take the tour... More

We had the opportunity for a short stop at Fairview Lawn Cemetery and it turned out to be a very moving stop. Our tour director is something of a historian and we learned a great deal about the role Halifax played in the Titanic sinking. No smiles and few comments during our our visits - just thoughts and prayers for... More

It's a really large park on the northside of Halifax. If you are on south Barrington, you can take the 7 North bus to get there.

A wonderful tribute to those poor souls that lost their lives in the deep. Many graves, some without names marking where many of the deceased from the disaster were laid to rest. Wonderfully kept memorial and a place for reflection.

A must to see when in Halifax, very well done and interesting, there are actually 3 cemeteries but this one has the most disaster victims (120) easy to get to by car.

I thoroughly enjoyed this bit of history for the burial place of unclaimed persons from the Titanic tragedy. Some of the headstones included names, many did not. It made history come to life.

This is the spot where many Titantic victims are memorialized. This is a must stop on your visit to Halifax. The history of the rescue of recovery of victims is enlightening and sad. Quite impressive the stones and how they registered each victim. Don't miss this historical stop.
