An absolute must for Titanoraks.

I've wanted to visit here since I was a child, I'm a massive Titanorak so it's a site of pilgrimage for me. It was so, so moving to see all the graves and finally be with those who so sadly died on Titanic. It's heartbreaking to see all the stones and read the stories, such as the grave if the... More

though there were a bus of tourists when we visited, the place is oozing with silence and sadness. We went around to read each name some are unknown though. We offered prayers for the repose of the souls of the titanic victims.

This was a beautiful tribute to all who lost their lives on the Titanic. A must see if you are in Halifax.

Unless you are a Titanic fan, this place you can skip. I lived in Halifax most of my life and until the movie "Titanic" came out, tourists did not go here. It does not have the same old-timey atmosphere as our older burying grounds (which are worth a visit). I find the look of the place depressing, and not because... More

After going to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic we felt we needed to go to the grave sites also. It's sad to stand at the first victim's headstone which was a little girl of only 2yrs old, but it puts a warm feeling in your heart when you see all the gifts and coins people have placed near her...

Beautiful cemetery, a must-stop for anyone interested in the Titanic. Our tour guide took us here on our way into Halifax and talked to us about the tragedy, how the graves were done, the stories behind certain headstones, etc. It really made it much more real and poignant. I recommend going with a guide or do your research beforehand to... More

Cemeteries are not happy places, but this one is particularly sad because of the Titanic graves. It really makes the tragedy become more real all these years later. Worth a visit, though it's about a 10 minute drive or so from downtown.

Took my wife here for a somber and historical tour of the Titanic victims graves. The graves are well cared for. The gardens are clean and well kept. Very peaceful.

Very interesting look at Halifax's involvement in the titanic tragedy, as well as the explosion of 1917. A solemn experience, and yes, there is a headstone for J. Dawson
