Fairview Lawn Cemetery RMS Titanic Grave Sites

Before we left for the Halifax area, a friend told Dorothy about a cemetery where 150¬†victims of the RMS Titanic were buried … 10% of those who died. We actually found it by accident and went to visit.

It was fascinating to read about the circumstances that lead to the burial here and the story behind the design of the memorial and several of the headstones. The Fairview Lawn Cemetery RMS Titanic grave site was designed to fit into the slope of the hill where they rest.
