Visiting the gravesites of 'The Titanic' victims was a sobering experience. They are set in the shape of the ship's prow, and there are still so many unidentified. It was tremendous to see and feel how much the people of Halifax cared for these victims. Made us feel a kinship with this city.

We took a private taxi to the Cemetery and the driver took us directly to the area where the Titanic victims were buried. Seeing the different headstones and reading the names reminded us of what we had seen at the Maritime Museum.

Some people get creeped out about cemeteries but I find them fascinating and this one certainly holds your interest. The graves of 109 Titanic passengers are here. It was interesting to see all with the writing "Died April 15, 1912". Those who were identified by family had their name on above this. Those who were not identified just had this... More

You can park near the gravesite and take a short walk to see the markers. Interesting to read epitaphs and sad to think of the massive loss of life from the sinking of the Titanic.

We were on a tour around the Halifax area. One of our stops was at Fairview Lawn Cemetery where some of people who were killed in the sunken Titanic were buried. The supposed unsinkable Titanic slammed into an iceberg on it's maiden voyage to the USA. Ships from Halifax were sent to help bring the dead to be buried and... More

We traveled here from a cruise ship on an organised tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information and history behind the Titanic Cemetery which is part of the larger overall Fairview Lawn Cemetery. It was a very sobering moment coming from a Cruise Ship of how important your Captain and crew are and how... More

We are glad this stop was included in our tour. The history surrounding the Titanic disaster is fascinating when you have a good guide to tell you the stories. The burial sites were respectfully positioned in the cemetary and it was a solumn but memorable moment during our trip to Halifax.

We took the public bus to get to the cemetery rather than a tour. It was much cheaper, and we were able to spend as much time as we wanted there. The Titanic Grave Site is set up very nicely. There was a tour at the site, and we did hear some of the tour guide's explanation of the various... More

This is a wonderful and moving site. Be sure to visit the mass gravesite from the Halifax Explosion along with the more popular Titanic site. This is a way out of town. We took our rented car out to it and found the route from downtown a bit tricky. Consider going with a group, especially if it will include a... More
