We took a private taxi to the Cemetery and the driver took us directly to the area where the Titanic victims were buried. Seeing the different headstones and reading the names reminded us of what we had seen at the Maritime Museum.

You can park near the gravesite and take a short walk to see the markers. Interesting to read epitaphs and sad to think of the massive loss of life from the sinking of the Titanic.

We took the public bus to get to the cemetery rather than a tour. It was much cheaper, and we were able to spend as much time as we wanted there. The Titanic Grave Site is set up very nicely. There was a tour at...More

Fairview Cemetery is a long walk from Halifax's downtown but it is on a bus route - the excellent tourist information centre will be able to help you with that. If you are walking with a cane you shouldn't have too much... More
