Trip Planner: Canada / Nova Scotia / Halifax Regional Municipality / Halifax / Fairview Lawn 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.

I've only been here to view the Titanic grave sites. Years ago when I first visited it was in better condition due to less traffic going through the area. Now, there are a lot of tour buses that bring people through it. I overheard a tour guide as he shared some of the stories. Some were accurate, others were a bit stretched (read fabricated) to make for a more entertaining story I guess. I was disappointed to be there while all of the tours came through, but if you can avoid those times it's definitely worth a visit even if you are not a Titanic enthusiast.
The cemetery was gorgeous and well cared for. I was able to take my time and look through the entire titanic memorial. I would suggest that you take a guided tour though, they have tons of information on the victims, it was beautiful.
