I have been here twice now and find the history very interesting and sobering. Learn about how Halifax helped with the, sadly, recovery mission of the Titanic. It's a beautiful spot to take a moment to reflect and pay your respects.

It's a moving experience to come here and see some of the graves of the people who died when the Titanic sank. Some of the gravestones are particularly poignant with words from hymns on and the grave of the tiny child who died really makes...More

This is quite a sight to see, the titanic graves. I would recommend it to anyone that has any interest in the titanic or history. My wife has only a tiny bit of interest in either and found it very interesting. The area is well...More

Very interesting for Titanic followers, but not centrally located. It is, in my opinion, best suited for tour visits with someone who interprets what you are seeing and tells the stories that go with it. A quiet peaceful place.

Like much of Halifax history, this is part of that tragedy and history. Plenty of parking. A somber reminder of the scope of what occurred.

IF your into the Titanic history then this is a place for you. Our tour guide provided much of backstory so it made it interesting. Not sure you would get it all if you went on your own

Its a well kept cemetery, and they are well prepared for the inevitable visitors looking for the Titanic grave sites. Small and tasteful memorial. There were a few people, all respectful, but apparently the occasional bus tour does show up.

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?
