If you can make your way to the Fairview lawn cemetery it is worth the trip to see the grave stones for those passed away on the Titanic. There is an updated plague explaining how they are still discovering some of the unknown victims names and other details with new technology.

A few days after the sinking, the Mackie Bennet found 327 bodies of passengers and crew of the Titanic - ironically the exact number of additional people who could have been saved if every lifeboat had been filled properly before being launched. The bodies were brought to Halifax and as many as possible were identified by their personal items etc.... More

The graves of the Titanic victims are still as moving all these years later. Some are so young and some are still being identified even now. Cemetery very peaceful

We stopped by around 4 and we were the only people at the cometary. It is interesting to read the grave stones. It is surprising they do not have all the names listed on the grave stones. They kept the clothes of all the victims in hope to one day identify all those found through records or dna.

I visited here on a bus tour while on a cruise. I was fortunate to have a knowledgable guide who was able to tell many stories about the people from the Titanic who are buried here. Without the tour guide, the visit would not have been as interesting.

Visited the cemetery as part of a Halifax city tour. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed learning about the demise of Canada's Titanic and the system used to bury the unknown passengers. If our visit had not included the tour guide's stories and information, I don't think we would have enjoyed the visit as much. He shared with... More

Part of our tour took us here to the cemetery. The history behind the poor souls from the Titanic that did not make it. The unknown child who is now known due to DNA tests was a very interesting story. Recommend using a tour to get the history.

This is one you do not want to miss. The gravesites of the casualties of the Titanic that were pulled from the ocean or washed ashore. Its better if you can get a tour guide to explain the stories behind some of the graves.
