This is a special and specialized place, by which we mean that if you're aware of what it is and why it is, you will be very moved. If not, it is just an out-of-the-way, not easy to find cemetery near a railroad yard in the northern part of Halifax. To us, it was a special place. It is where... More

This was another stop of our Halifax Titanic Historical Tour By Paul. Was very interesting the history he told us about this grounds. Of course if you go without a guide you won't appreciate the area as much. But, still may be nice to see. Would not recommend for children.

This is why we went to Halifax. It is awe inspiring to see the graves. The victims came here because the Nova Scotia seamen were able to handle the Atlantic Ocean cold water. Ismay's servant is buried here. They have kept all of the DNA and trying to identify all the victims but time is running out. They identified the... More

We caught the local bus here after great information and free tickets from 2 lovely young ladies we asked for help with directions. The bus driver even got off the bus when we got there and showed us which way to walk and how to catch the bus back to town. We tacked on to a tour and heard great... More

I walked through this cemetery many times as a teenager going home from the Pubs to the North End. I didn't know it contained the graves of victims of the Titanic until nearly 30 years later. I guess the point of my story is that if you visit the cemetery on your own, you'll have to look around for a... More

We went to FLC out of immense respect for Titanic victims, a tragedy that remains engraved in minds since childhood. FLC is conveniently located in the city and can be combined with Peggy's Cove. Roads are good and vehicle can be driven inside FLC. It would be worthwhile to take a guide for those of you who are interested in... More

We visited as part of our guided tour which made it very interesting. Without a guide, probably not nearly as interesting. Our guide told stories about many of the individuals whose markers we saw. There is also a book that describes in detail people buried here as part of the Titanic disaster.

When this stop was recommended by a friend, it sounded rather obligatory at best. However, with back stories provided by a tour guide, it evoked a personal response from nearly everyone. We know the story of the Titanic, but to connect to the final resting places was unexpectedly touching. The cemetery itself is nicely maintained, a beautiful setting. If you... More

I wouldn't really recommend visiting the Titanic graveyard unless you are REALLY interested in the Titanic graves. The Titanic plots are really small and little information is given about the people laying there.
