  • The Fairview Lawn cemetery is beautifully nestled on a hillside in the North of Halifax, not far from the shopping mall. He is really beautifully planted with trees, but as so often in North America going through drive up almost before the grave stones, which can lead just in front of the graves of Titanic victims to traffic chaos. The guides, which are constantly there present contribute not just to a quiet cemetery atmosphere. The tombs of the victims are simply, on the edge of BB´s is still a tablet with explanations about the accident. If one is near you should see the cemetery.

  • 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.
  • Nice place, respectfully done. Was annoyed by the whole bus load of titantic tourists but who am I to talk?
