A cab ride away from downtown halifax, this is the graveyard where some of the titanic victims are laid. It's surprising just how young many of the victims are. The headstones laid out in the shape of a boat - beautifully and respectfully done.

Eric with Halifax Tour Guys took us here as part of our tour. He gave us insight as to what we would see prior to arrival. It was a somber reminder of the tragedy.

Interesting to see the gravesite of some victims of the Titanic disaster. Our guide, Jonathan, explained a lot about the different people buried there as well as some history of the Titanic.

Took a few minutes to go to the Fairview Lawn Cemetery. To pay respect to the lost of the Titanic passengers and others. Glad we did.

This was an interesting historical site, made much better by having a good tour guide to explain what we were viewing. I would not go without someone to explain some of the background and individual stories of the persons buried here.

Good place to lie down and never get up. Great place to lose a child or unwanted companion. Stay an hour or stay forever.

Fairview is worth a visit if you have any interest in the story of Titanic. There are a number of unmarked graves along with those who were identified. It is very sad to think of those young people who lost their lives so tragically, many...More

Fairview Cemetery is a long walk from Halifax's downtown but it is on a bus route - the excellent tourist information centre will be able to help you with that. If you are walking with a cane you shouldn't have too much... More

There are signs to follow to the Titanic section, easy to find and park. Not sure about the explosion?
