    Well-worth a visit, if you are with a tour guide
    This cemetery contains a number of victims of the 1912 Titanic disaster. We went with a local expert who had a lot of information on the victims and the Titanic itself. If you simply attend by yourself, I'm not sure you would be impressed. If you are there on a tour, I believe you will feel it was worth the time.

    I made a last-minute stop at this cemetery.
    Just before I left Nova Scotia, I wanted to pay my respect to the victims of the Titanic and to the 1917 Great Disaster. It was free to enter this cemetery, but this cemetery was only open for very random hours. It would be wise to check these hours of operation prior to any entry. It was quiet on a Monday morning. I was able to follow the signs to the locations that I wanted to visit, and I just parked my car as I viewed the graves.

    wonderful piece of history
    This was always on my bucket list, and I am so glad I was able to get on a group tour from our cruise ship. We had a guide who told some great (and sad) stories about the various people who lost their lives. I enjoyed hearing about how they identified the youngest victim from DNA. It was also interesting learning there was a J. Dawson (not Jack though). You don't need much time, but its definitely worth seeing a piece of history. Well-maintained.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I visited this cemetery while in Halifax. This cemetery is known for having graves from victims of the Titanic and the Halifax explosion of 1917. It's a must-see for anyone interested in the sinking of the Titanic. Halifax has a few Titanic sites to visit, but this cemetery has the majority of the graves. The famed J Dawson grave is located here. The cemetery was easy to drive around and has signs leading you in the proper direction.

If you're a history or movie buff, take a detour to visit the Titanic Graveyard section of the cemetery. You'll see markers for a J. Dawson (sadly, not Jack!) and JW Marriott (no relation).

There are information points available giving some details of the graves but being accompanied by a local guide will greatly increase your understanding of what you are witnessing.

This Cemetery is home to some of the graves of those who perished on the Titanic as well as the people who died in the Halifax Explosion. Some of the markers are extremely poignant.

A must see when visiting Halifax! Walking amongst the final resting places of the Titanic victims was very humbling. We paid our respects and took many pictures. Give yourself about an hour to roam.

Walking among the graves, one is struck by the stones with the ages of those who perished on the Titanic. So many young people

We visited the Titanic gravesites with a tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of historical facts. Very interesting and moving.
