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.

  • We visited the cemetery to view the area dedicated to the graves of the victims of the Titanic disaster. The graves were beautifully laid out in the shape of a ship’s hull. Very emotional visit

  • The graves for those lost in the titanic were worth a quick visit. Some were more elaborate and explained the deceased's role on the ship. J. Dawson also has a grave marker in this location.

  • Took a walk through the Fairview Lawn Cemetery to look at the memorial for those who lost their lives on the Titanic. I did it mostly for my son, who when he was a child, watched the movie over and over, and would cry everytime. Such a sweet angel, my boy is. While I was there I also learned about an explosion that happened on the pier, claiming many lives in the early 1900s. Halifax is rich with history.
  • A walk here is like a walk through history. Resting place for Titanic and Halifax explosion victims.
