The story of the Titanic is one that has fascinated people around the world for almost 100 years. Today learn of the Titanic tragedy along with a guided visit to the Fairview Lawn Cemetery, where 121 victims are still buried.
It was late in the evening of April 14, 1912 that the ship, said to be 'unsinkable', struck an iceberg on her first, and last, transatlantic voyage, succumbing to the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean. It's a tale that has been immortalized in books, songs and an award-winning movie, and now we bring the legend to life for you. Step back in time with our knowledgeable guide to discover Halifax's connection to this tragic event. Hear the details of how two vessels launched from Halifax Harbor were among the first to assist in the rescue and recovery effort, and how one became known as the 'death ship' in reclaiming 300 bodies from the ocean. Find out why 150 of the 209 bodies brought back to Halifax were buried in three cemeteries throughout the city. Visit Fairview Lawn Cemetery, known to many as the Titanic Cemetery because it is the final resting place for more Titanic victims than any other cemetery in the world. You will also explore the stories of the people memorialized by the gravestones, including the well-known monument to the 'unknown child'.
