“Beautiful cemetery-Titanic victims”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Visited this cemetery as part of a Halifax tour we were on. We always enjoy seeing the local cemeteries and wanted to especially see this one since it had many of the Titanic victims buried here. Paying tribute to so many lost soles and to us was a powerful experience. Visiting here is of course free but expect a lot of tourists like yourself. If you go alone try to get near a larger group who probably has a guide and learn more history from them. Was worth the visit to this beautiful cemetery and so sorry from the tragedy of the entire event.

“Final resting place for some of the Titanic passengers and crew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is a well kept cemetery considering it is on the bus tours of Halifax.
The graves of the Titanic victims are in 3 rows depicting the bow of a ship. Very peaceful. Well worth a visit

“RIP Titanic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Makes a story read and a movie watched so real. It is worth a quick visit just to see & say a prayer.
