This is definitely worth a visit if you're in Halifax. I saw that some reviews suggested going with a tour guide. We went on our own, but we went to the Maritime Museum first, which was also helpful in giving info about some of the graves here. We knew nothing about Halifax's connection to the Titanic before visiting the city,... More

The site is very moving. I liked it best with a guide as they can tell the stories of the people buried there. If you didn't have a guide would just have 1 sign and the plots to see. The stories make it all worthwhile.

We grow up learning about the Titanic. We see the movie -- and saw Old Rose throw The Heart of the Ocean diamond overboard. Personally, I thought it would have been nice if she left it for her granddaughter who obviously had become her care-giver, but that's me. Anyway, at Fairview, you can see the final resting place of a... More

It sounds a bit morbid and you need a car to access this cemetery but if you want to take 20 minutes and visit the graves it will help bring a bit of the Titanic disaster to life. Visit the Maritime Museum before and see the Titanic exhibition of stories and artifacts. Be prepared to have a few bus tours... More

If you interested in the Titanic,Its a another moving piece of the mystery of this famous ship. Sad to read the headstone inscriptions and also sad to see that the white star line was only prepared to pay for very rudimentary ones. Well worth a visit for sure.

Our visit here really brought home the tragic reality of the Titanic disaster and in particular those who perished who were never identified.

We visited the area where the Titanic victims were buried. The majority of the headstones are the same, only a few have had larger ones erected. All bodies were numbered as they were found. The last, number 330, was found a month after the others. Some graves have no names and some have had names added after they had been... More

This place was surprisingly difficult to find but well worth the visit. It is also worth visiting the Catholic cemetery nearby where other victims of the Titanic are buried.
