Lonely Planet review

When the Titanic sank, the bodies not buried at sea were brought to Halifax. Today there are 19 graves at Mt Olivet Catholic Cemetery , 10 in the Baron de Hirsch Jewish Cemetery at the north end of Windsor St, and 121 in the adjacent Fairview Lawn Cemetery ; 40 graves are still unidentified. J Dawson, whose name was the basis for Leonardo DiCaprio's character in the film Titanic, is buried at Fairview Cemetery.
