One grave in Halifax’s Fairview Cemetery that often gets special notice belongs to John Law Hume - a 21 year-old-violinist who played in the ships band and performed for passengers until the very end.
John was an accomplished life-long violist, who hailed from Dumfies, England.
I visited the cemetery on the Titanic Memorial Cruise, and there was a magnificent floral tribute from his great-great niece (and author of a recent book about him) - it included a violin model. I dig out the photos later.
