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.

I have visited before and this time I was taking a new visitor to the Titanic graves. Seeing tourists posing by the headstones once before was a very annoying act on their behalf. It is very moving to walk among the headstones to see real names is moving and thoughtful. To put a real face on a historical event is... More

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.

We were on the Halifax tour and I took this one because I am a Titanic buff. It was a solemn place and we all viewed it with reverence for those lost on the greatest ocean disaster in history. We saw Jack Dawson's grave and the grave of the baby first pulled from the water (identified in 2012). If the... More

I must adimit I wasn't to sure about going here, not really my thing. However it really was quite moving, whole families gone and some of the victims were so young. The way they have placed the headstones to form the shape of the bow is a really nice touch.

More than 100 years on the fasination with the Titanic continues to grow. You can watch the films read the books but seeing the graves you remember that these were realy people with hopes and dreams for the future. What you will notice with the number of visitors to the site is the silence. Eveyone speaks quitely with respect. Though... More

OK we were tourists when we visited here even though we did so from our cruise ship specifically because of our interest in the Titanic tragedy and we chose this tour rather than the many others on offer because of that interest. This is the cemetery where most of the bodies retrieved from the Titanic area were buried but there... More
