This cemetery with the titanic graves were very emotional, they are all numbered and all graves form the bow of the titanic, very sad but very interesting and such a wonderful memorial for these people and their families.

A must for Titanic fans, this has the biggest collection of graves, some of which are still well maintained by those paying their respects. Sombre and interesting at the same time.

Fairview Cemetery is where my family members are buried. My grandparents graves are directly opposite the Titanic victim burials. Aside from visiting my grandparents graves, I always walk through the Titanic graves. It's solemn, quite and reflective.

Historical walk through and a Titanic Graveyard. Yes January Dawson grave stone is here but has no association with the movie. Good for a nice side trip.

I see on the site it says NOT wheelchair accessible. How about someone walking with a cane? In general will they be able to traverse the landscape to get to the Titanic portion of the cemetery, is it close to the roadway?
