What an overwhelmingly touching place. The reality of the tragedy is brought home when you see the many headstones and realize it is just some of those lost. Good place for a family to take some time to learn some history and to talk about what these people and their families must have gone through. Easy to find and free... More

Anyone interested in Titanic history must visit this cemetery where the bulk of the recovered bodies from the ill fated ship were buried. Your visit would be even more poignant if you have a connection to any of the deceased. Good visit simply for the historical significance of the cemetery

Interesting cemetery that also has a Titanic burial site. For any history buff, worth a short visit to look. Keep in mind that this is an active cemetery so there may be a funeral occurring – try to be respectful.

We stopped by the cemetery for a quick peak at all of the graves from the Titanic. Many were unmarked, either by name or birthdate. You will find Jack Dawson's grave and the grave of an infant who was only recently identified. It was quick and interesting!

WE loved visiting this cemetery because of the final resting places for so many that lost their lives in the Titanic tragedy! They have finally found the unknown infants identity! Cool!

It is a beautifully maintained very old cemetery- that makes you think of the history and past events of Halifax including explosion, the Titanic and other maritime hardships. There are many hidden stories in old cemeteries.

This cemetery is not far from the Halifax waterfront. The Titanic section is not very large, but still manages to convey the magnitude of this tragedy. Spent a peaceful and reflective hour there.

Visited this lovely cemetery couple of weeks ago to pay respects to the victims of two major tragedies that affected Halifax in the 20th century: those who died on the Titanic and those linked to the Halifax Explosion. Having visited the Maritime Museum (where there’s good exhibits on both tragic events) just earlier that day, our visit turned out to... More

This was a stop on our chartered tour. The entire cemetery is beautiful, but we focused on the section where the victims of the Titanic disaster are buried. A wonderful tribute to them.

Nice respectful memorial to those who died on the Titanic. The cemetery also has a lot of graves of those who were killed in the tragic harbor explosion just five years later. It was an interesting place to walk around.
