Signature Event

One hundred and twenty-one victims of the Titanic sinking are buried at Fairview Lawn Cemetery, more than any other cemetery in the world. Many of the victims are memorialized with small, grey, granite markers that cite their date of death, April 15, 1912. Some of the victims names' appear on the markers while other victims remain unidentified.

The gravesite of the Unknown Child, later identified 19-month old Sidney Leslie Goodwin from England, is located at the cemetery. His small leather shoes are on display at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax.

Twenty-nine other Titanic victims are also buried in Halifax; 19 victims in the Mount Olivet Cemetery, a Roman Catholic cemetery, and 10 victims in the Baron de Hirsch Cemetery, a Jewish cemetery, also known at the Beth Israel Synagogue Cemetery.
