Titanic graves

Okay, it's a cemetery. However the Titanic graves are very moving. We all know the story, but this site made it a bit more personal.

Beautifully located in the Fairview Harbour. The place is a cemetery though. I know people come here to see the people from the Titanic that are buried here but I come for my Grandfather and Grandmother to pay respect to them. God rest their souls.

We visited the Titanic graveyard at the Fairview Lawn cemetery in May 2015, if you are ever in Halifax you should make an effort to visit this historic site to visit the graves sites of the people that died on 15th April 1912 even though you don't know them it's nice to think they have been remembered the named graves...

This is an interesting place to come and visit and see the Titanic Graveyard site. Very somber still and moving well worth a stop by.

This is a beautiful resting place of the small number of recovered bodies from the disaster of the Titanic. It was humbling to hear how so many more were unable to be laid to rest in this location. It is an easy public bus ride to come here if that is your chosen mode of transportation.

Amazing to walk amongst the final resting places of 121 victims of the Titanic. Even more special with one of the great guides from Ambassatours. A very solemn touching place that needs to be on everyone's Halifax itinerary.

With all the info available about the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 1912, I never knew until today that three ships from the Canadian fleet helped retrieve survivors from the icy waters of the North Atlantic, as well as the remains of those who didn't survive. Nor did I know that so many of the ill-fated were buried... More

Be prepared to be humbled, be prepared to learn, please respect the area - this is a graveyard but what a wealth of information lies there and new evidence is turning up regularly by researchers and gradually all the unnamed are being named and that is a good thing. So many stories abound here, including the grave of the real... More

How exciting can a cemetery be? Other than going to view the Titanic section we didn't walk around the rest of the cemetery. We weren't part of a group tour which may have made a significant difference on our experience but it was still compelling to stand on a piece of land that is tied to one of the world's... More
