Titanic victims laid to rest in Halifax

The bodies of those recovered in the Titanic disaster were taken to Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was a grim task for undertakers who dealt with 280 of those who died.

Today it is where the majority remain in three cemeteries as most families couldn't afford to bring relatives home.

White Star refused to help and the pay of the crew was stopped as soon as the tragedy occurred. Halifax historian Blair Beed talks to Mike Pearse.
