This cemetery have 150 body here from the disaster of the Titanic, very interesting to listen to the tour guy, still places that don't have a name yet, is up to you how much time you spend is you want to read all the names, but I think an hour or less is sufficient

It sounds weird but I am a bit of a cemetary fan. You can learn a lot about a place from a historical perspective from their cemetaries. This one has a couple of really nice walk trails through the cemetary and as you approach the harbour basin it connects through a gate to yet another cemetary. The bulk of the... More

My partner and I visited Fairview Lawn Cemetery with "Bruce's Tours" (see my review on this site). Knowing that Fairview Lawn was a major Titanic burial site, we just had to see it for ourselves. The site itself is very well maintained and solemn -- as it should be out of respect for the 100+ souls who lost their lives... More

Took the bus here and missed the stop. It feels like you're in an industrial area and we had to walk quite a bit to catch another bus. That wouldn't have been that big an issue, but there were no washrooms in the cemetery, or at least not outside of office hours. Other than that, it's easy to find the... More

This cemetery with the titanic graves were very emotional, they are all numbered and all graves form the bow of the titanic, very sad but very interesting and such a wonderful memorial for these people and their families.

A must for Titanic fans, this has the biggest collection of graves, some of which are still well maintained by those paying their respects. Sombre and interesting at the same time.

Fairview Cemetery is where my family members are buried. My grandparents graves are directly opposite the Titanic victim burials. Aside from visiting my grandparents graves, I always walk through the Titanic graves. It's solemn, quite and reflective.

I have visited before and this time I was taking a new visitor to the Titanic graves. Seeing tourists posing by the headstones once before was a very annoying act on their behalf. It is very moving to walk among the headstones to see real names is moving and thoughtful. To put a real face on a historical event is... More
