Famous as the site of several people who perished on the luxury cruise liner Titanic. This is a very large cemetery located beside the “Windsor Street Exchange”. As you pass through the intersection and begin traveling up a slight hill on Windsor St you will find the entrance on your right, easy to miss so watch closely. Proceed through the cemetery towards the back lot and follow the signs marked Titanic. Once at the Titanic area there is very little parking, although you can easily park smaller vehicles along the side of the cemetery road close to the area. The headstones are all located in one plot that is on a slight embankment, even a headstone that reads famously “J.Dawson”.

When contacting them for assistance they were very rude. They did end up helping in the end which I appreciate, but they were very short with me. When dealing with the final resting places of people's loved ones, one would think they would have better manners and be a little more sympathetic...

Peaceful resting place for the Titanic victims. Was there in August and Halifax is a beautiful city.

This was very interesting. Loved reading the signs. I wish there were more signs about the Halifax explosion though

I was there in 2013 I liked how they honour the victims even though none were recovered

There are many known and unidentified victims of the Titanic tragedy buried here. It’s nicely kept and serves as a great memorial to the victims. It’s very sad and allows us to honor those people and to remember them. They deserve to be remembered.
