This cemetery is not far from the Halifax waterfront. The Titanic section is not very large, but still manages to convey the magnitude of this tragedy. Spent a peaceful and reflective hour there.

Visited this lovely cemetery couple of weeks ago to pay respects to the victims of two major tragedies that affected Halifax in the 20th century: those who died on the Titanic and those linked to the Halifax Explosion. Having visited the Maritime Museum (where there’s good exhibits on both tragic events) just earlier that day, our visit turned out to... More

This was a stop on our chartered tour. The entire cemetery is beautiful, but we focused on the section where the victims of the Titanic disaster are buried. A wonderful tribute to them.

Nice respectful memorial to those who died on the Titanic. The cemetery also has a lot of graves of those who were killed in the tragic harbor explosion just five years later. It was an interesting place to walk around.

This was part of our Gray Line Tour and was very interest because of our tour guide David. We learned the reason the gravestones are marked the way they are and we won't give it away for new visitrs.

We spent 30 minutes walking among the gravesites of some of the Titanic victims. Found it very moving. Visitors leave flowers and notes on the gravesites. 2 of the more famous graves are that if the unknown 2 year old victim and the gravesite of the chief steward honored by J Bruce Ismay--president of the White Star Line who survived...

A very becoming, and respectful place to learn more about the Titanic disaster. The cemetery has done a good job identifying the area the public should visit.

Anyone with interest in the Titanic would find this worth taking the time to see. Young children would not appreciate it, but teens and preteens would probably be interested.

As are so many others, I am fascinated by the Titanic. I was fortunate to visit Cobh, Ireland a few years ago, which was the last port of call for the Titanic before it set sail across the Atlantic. It seemed fitting to visit the final resting place of some of her victims while in Halifax. We stopped here around... More

As part of a day tour of Halifax and its surrounding countryside, we visited Fairview Lawn Cemetery, where more than 120 victims of the 1912 Titanic disaster were buried. It was a moving experience. Informative signage, detailing how these honored dead came to rest in Halifax, precedes one's arrival at the rows of neat, nearly uniform head stones that often... More
