4.5/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web
Visit Fairview Lawn Cemetery, a non-denominational cemetery best known as the final resting place for more than 100 of those who died in the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Small, gray granite headstones with simple inscriptions mark the victims of the maritime tragedy. One of the more famous plots here is that of The Unknown Child. Left unidentified for nearly a century, the child has now been formally named the 19-month-old Sidney Leslie Goodwin, an English child who died along with his whole family.
