I am a HUGE Titanic Buff and this made my trip. I left feeling very sad but felt like I finally put real people to the sad tragedy. I did not take a tour but hired a taxi that waited for us.

Visited this cemetery where 100+ victims of the Titanic disaster are buried, some still unidentified. The cemetery is a beautiful place, well-maintained and easy to navigate. If you are in Halifax I would recommend spending an hour or two here.

We had been here before many years ago. After finding out more regarding the Titanic wanted to return & see the changes some of the tombstones. A wet & dreary day, but well worth going back to.

I was interested in the historical aspects of Halifax, so we went here to see the Titanic graves. It was fairly easy to find the place and the graves within the cemetery were easy to locate. Very meaningful.
