Cemetery
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.

  • When contacting them for assistance they were very rude. They did end up helping in the end which I appreciate, but they were very short with me. When dealing with the final resting places of people's loved ones, one would think they would have better manners and be a little more sympathetic...
  • Peaceful resting place for the Titanic victims. Was there in August and Halifax is a beautiful city.
  • I was there in 2013 I liked how they honour the victims even though none were recovered
  • This was very interesting. Loved reading the signs. I wish there were more signs about the Halifax explosion though
  • 10/10 Would bury loved ones here after they die.
