A resting place for the dead in the heart of Halifax is the Fairview Lawn Cemetery. When the Titanic went down on 12 April 1912, Halifax was the closest port and of the 209 bodies recovered, 150 were buried in Halifax and 129 are buried here. Five years later, Halifax was host to another tragedy: the Halifax Explosion. Nearly 2000 perished in the disaster and many are interred here. Located just north of the city's business and industrial districts, the Fairview Lawn Cemetery is a major stop for the curious and those interested in the Titanic disaster.
